Police renew appeal for information on attempted fraud in Grantham


By Grantham Reporter


Police have renewed their appeal for help following a number of incidents of attempted fraud in Grantham.

Lincolnshire Police has released a picture of a man they want to speak to in connection with two incidents of attempted fraud in the town.

In one incident (number 112) on December 17, a man entered The Priory pub on Dysart Road claiming to be collecting an agreed charitable donation for a university rugby club.

A police spokesman said: "An incident the day before is also being investigated in which a man claimed to be making a large booking in exchange for a charitable donation. This happened at a pub on Vine Street in Grantham.

"If you know the man pictured, call police on 101 with incident reference 112 of December 17. We believe he may have links to the Birmingham area."

Similar incidents in Boston have since come to light and police want to speak to the same man in connection with these. The first incident relates to Sussex Avenue in Boston which occurred on December 20. The second attempt was made on West Street in Boston on the same date. These incidents also involved a man claiming to be taking a donation for charity in return for a large booking with their establishment.

If you have any information about the Boston incidents call 101 with the same incident number and date.
