CD FIT – Burglary in Glasnevin, Dublin on the 17/2/11

On the 17th February 2011 at 4.30pm an elderly woman was in her home in Wadelai Road, Glasnevin. An unknown male called to her home and stated he was checking the heating system in the area and his name was Tommy Doyle.  He said he was a friend of a man known to her.  The male checked all the rooms in the house and checked the walls.  He stated there was a problem with the heating and he would need to order a part to fix it.  The woman had not reported any problems with her heating system.  She offered to pay him for the part by cheque but he refused.  He asked her if she had an ATM account and stated that she did but she could only take €200 out at a time.  The male stated that he would take her to the bank in order for her to withdraw the cash.  He brought her to Bank on Mobhi Road and parked outside while the woman went into the bank and withdrew €600 which she gave to the man.  He then brought her home and told her he would return on the 18/02/2011 at 9.30am but he never did.

Description of Male -  5ft 6”, heavy build, clean shaven & spoke with an Irish accent, wearing blue jeans, light coloured blue or white top.
