Morecambe police hunt card fraudsters who robbed pensioner
Police have issued CCTV images of three people they want to speak with after £600 was withdrawn from a Morecambe pensioner’s bank account without her permission.
The offence is believed to have taken place between 27th June and 1st July when the bank card was removed from the 73-year-old victim’s purse at her home address on Delamere Avenue in Heysham and was used to withdraw money from a cash machine in the Morecambe area.
Police have issued CCTV stills of three people they need to trace in connection with the offence.
PC Ben Hanley said: “I would urge people to take a close look at the CCTV images and if anyone recognises any of the three people pictured if ask them to contact me at Lancashire Police on 101.”
