MANCHESTER police want to interview a St Albans man in connection with a crime in which a 91-year-old woman was conned out of more than £185,000 of life savings.
Four people have already been convicted of money laundering after the victim paid out the vast sum for work to be done to her garden in South Manchester during 2005.
But three men are still wanted in connection with the incident, including a man called Kevin Laney who is believed to have lived at St Leonard's Crescent in St Albans several years ago.
The 46-year-old has brown, sandy-coloured receding hair and a southern accent, and is thought to have links with the travelling community.
