During the day of this Saturday, May 25, 2024, two elderly people were victims of theft by trickery, records the Calvados gendarmerie.

Pretending to sell postcards to finance a school trip, a man diverted the attention of his victim in Ouistreham and stole an envelope containing around €400, according to initial information. The victim reported it shortly before 11 a.m.

1,800 euros at the distributor

In Falaise, also at the end of the morning, a fragile person was convinced to withdraw €1,800 from an ATM, pocketed by a suspect, without the victim being able to explain, after the fact, what this sum was intended for.
