Waterford Council warning over dog thief posing as warden
WATERFORD County Council has issued a warning to dog owners after receiving reports of a man claiming to be one of its dog wardens.
The council said the suspect has been seen in a 09 KK-reg van attempting to take dogs from members of the public.
According to reports, the man was challenged by suspicious members of the public and failed to produce official identification.
The council stressed its wardens do not seize dogs on the spot, and they will always produce ID when requested. They also said all the official vans have official council branding.
The council has urged anyone who comes across the man matching the above description tp immediately contact their local Garda station.
