Part of my campaign commitments was to protect the elderly and vulnerable from con-men operating around Huntingdon. One such individual had actually conned my mother-in-law. This person had been seen regularly around town and in Godmanchester and was known to con people in order to raise funds to feed is drug addiction.
During my campaign, I was able to get evidence of his activities and although the initial action from Cambridgeshire Police was not to proceed further, I was able to persuade them that this case had to be dealt with. Today, I received the news we had been waiting upon, the individual was sentenced to 12 months prison. Hopefully he will not be able continue with his tricks on release as I shall ensure residents are made aware of the type of con these individuals engage in.
