‘Laughing’ crook hunted

A GANG laughed at a Doncaster area pensioner as they fleeced her of cash in a con-trick.

The 89-year-old woman, living in Misterton, was duped out of £100 by the bogus roofers.

Three men, one aged about 50 and two in their 20s, stopped their black or navy blue panel van outside her home last week and insisted the roof needed repairs.

When she said she did not have enough money for the unnecessary repair, the older man took £100 from her and laughed as he got back in the van and drove off.

Police are appealing for any information about the offence and have warned other residents to be vigilant.
