Manchester Police appeal for Irishman Felix Rooney wanted for alleged £100,000 fraud of pensioner

POLICE in Manchester are appealing for help to find an Irishman wanted for fraud. 

Felix Rooney, 36, is wanted for fraud by false representation after a 72-year-old man was allegedly charged almost £100,000 for repair work.

The true value of the work was estimated at less than £1,000.

The offence took place in Didsbury in June 2015.
