Public being warned about Garda impersonator in the area

The public are being warned to be wary of a man posing as a gardaí in the area at present.

The warning comes after an elderly man in Ardee handed over a sum of cash to a person claiming to be a member of An Garda Siochana last Thursday.

The supposed Garda called to the man’s home around 10.30am and told him he had counterfeit cash in his property, which had to be tested.

The homeowner subsequently handed over the money after being shown fake ID.

While this has been an isolated incident, people are being urged to be wary.
