'Despicable' bogus workmen target pensioners

Bogus workmen in Dundee have stolen a three-figure sum of money from two elderly women in a "despicable" theft.

The pensioners were distracted in their home in Kerrsview Terrace by three men at about 17:00 on 5 February.

It is understood that the men left the area in a VW Passat car following the theft.

One man was described as being well built with a reddish brown thin beard, wearing a black quilted jacket, blue trousers and a black knitted hat.

Another was described as being about 25 to 30-years-old, wearing a hooded top, dark tracksuit with white stripes.

The third suspect was aged around 50 to 60-years-old.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "This is a despicable crime targeting elderly persons in their own home."
