Police Still Hunting Irish Scam Gang

Even Kids Coerced To Commit Crime

Police Still Hunting Irish Scam Gang

An 80-year-old man and his wife have fallen victim to Irish tourists who've allegedly been stealing and scamming their way around the Gold Coast and Brisbane.

The elderly man forked over 27 thousand dollars to five men guys to fix his leaking roof; but police say the tradies took off with his cash without doing the work.

Investigators believe they know the identities of some of the men and women accused of stealing from shops, ripping off restaurants, and even using their kids to commit crimes.

Some of the accused have left the country - while the rest have gone to ground after all the media attention.
