CCTV appeal following fraud in Doncaster

South Yorkshire Police have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with an incident of fraud.

It is reported that a man entered a property in the Armthorpe area of Doncaster under the false pretences of selling tobacco.

He then handed the victim, who is a 66-year-old woman several bags which contained cardboard boxes filled with wood instead of tobacco.

She handed him £2,350 in exchange.

The offence is thought to have taken place on 11 March 2020 at around 1pm.

As part of an ongoing investigation, officers have now launched a public appeal.

Police are asking for public assistance to identify the man in the image as he may be able to assist with the investigation.

This morning, a statement was released regarding the CCTV appeal following this most recent incident of fraud in Doncaster.

A spokesperson said:

“Do you recognise him?
