Gardaí are warning householders in east Galway to be wary of unsolicited callers after a man called to a number of homes claiming to be a health professional.
Several elderly people in the Loughrea area were targeted by the man, who posed as various professionals in a bid to get into their homes. The man was driving a white or silver saloon car at the time.
Gardaí have advised people to ask for identification when approached by unsolicited callers. Anyone with information on this man can contact Detective Garda McNamara at Loughrea Garda Station, phone (091 ) 842870.
