Detective Chief Inspector Michael Dougall, from the Roads and Transport Policing Command, said: “The elderly victim of this theft was understandably shaken by this experience.

“If there is any suggestion that an elderly victim has been specifically targeted after withdrawing money in our community, we will do our utmost to identify the person or people responsible.

“We are very keen to speak to the women in these photos and would urge the public to come forward if they can help us to identify them.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information about the identity of the two women should call 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting CAD 5892/13JUL.
