Last updated at 14:05, Friday, 16 August 2013
Police have issued an alert about a man who’s been duping farmers out of fuel.
Brampton-based support officer Tracy Watt says the Irishman has been going around farms buying bull calves. A community alert states: “He pays by cheque, which bounces.
“The conman also says he is running low on fuel and many farmers have let him fill his vehicle up, and put the extra amount on the bounced cheque.
“If you are visited by this person please get a registration number from his vehicle, so we can make further enquiries.”
