The cops say...

"On 3 February 2014, a 39-year-old woman lodged a police report at about 5.37pm informing (the police) that her 70-year-old uncle had been handing over money to two women over a period of time.

"The police interviewed the man and recorded his statement on the same day. He informed (the police) that the money had been handed to the two women on his own accord as a private loan and as such, police's assistance was not required.

"Based on the facts available at that point in time, police did not take any further action on the matter.

Subsequently, police received another report from the same man on 4 February 2015 at about 4.09pm.

"Acting on the further information provided, police initiated investigations and arrested a 65-year-old woman for cheating. Another 69-year-old woman is also assisting with police's investigations."
