"Prolific" Camberley fraudster who preyed on elderly sentenced

"Prolific" Camberley fraudster who preyed on elderly sentenced

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 6:32pm 16th July 2019.

A "prolific" Camberley fraudster who preyed on the elderly has been granted an indefinite Criminal Behaviour Order. 

Kieran Ryan, of Deanside, would cold-call on the elderly offering to their gardening work and charge excessive amounts for substandard work. 

Police say sometimes he wouldn't even do the work at all. 

In one instance, he conned an elderly man out of over £16,000. 

The 29-year-old admitted a count of fraud committed over a three month period in court last week. 

He received a 27 month custodial sentence for this offence.

His CBO bans him from knocking on stranger's doors and showing up at homes without being invited. 

In addition to the sentence, the Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) he was handed puts robust restrictions in place to help prevent his reoffending and protect members of the public.

Lucy Lumsden, Anti-Social Behaviour Case Builder for Surrey Police, said: 

"Mr Ryan's behaviour typically consisted of cold-calling on the elderly; offering to do their gardening work, before befriending his vulnerable victims and extracting money from them.

"Sometimes, Mr Ryan would take payments in advance and not do any work at all, or he would charge excessive amounts for basic and substandard work.

"The Order granted demonstrates our commitment to relentlessly pursuing those who commit anti-social behaviour and negatively impact on our community. Mr Ryan's fraudulent and exploitative behaviour has blighted the lives of many vulnerable people across Surrey and Sussex for several years, and so we hope that this indefinite CBO will deter Mr Ryan from committing further offences on his release from prison."

His CBO also means he has been banned from going to a specific address in Whyteleafe, Surrey
