Bogus ‘doctor’ stole cash from elderly man in his Clare home


GARDAÍ are appealing for witnesses after a man posing as a doctor stole money from an elderly person while “examining” them at their home.

On Monday evening August 23, at 5pm, a man called to the home of an elderly gentleman in Drumquin, Tiermaclane.

He identified himself as a doctor and as he examined him he took a sum of money in cash out of the homeowner’s pocket.

A car, possibly a black Volkswagen Passat, was seen acting suspiciously in the area around this time.

If anyone was in the area of Drumquin between 4.30pm and 5.30pm and saw this car or has dashcam footage, gardaí are asking them to contact the Ennis station on 065-6848100.
