A conman posed as a plumber at a house in Newbridge last week and tried to make off with money for material supplies.

The man knocked at a door in Newbridge last week and demanded cash for materials. Coincidentally, the woman who answered the door was waiting for a plumber to arrive that same day.

The conman looked for a substantial amount of cash for materials. Thankfully, moments later the proper plumber arrived. Sgt Seamus Rothwell of Newbridge Garda Station is warning people to be extra vigilant and to make sure to check people say who they are.
