POLICE have put out an urgent warning after a "fresh air" theft.
A conman told a woman he could sell her cut-price cigarettes.
She paid him and later opened the cigarette packets - finding them full of newspaper.
A "fresh air" theft is one where the thief promises to sell something, but has nothing to sell.
Now, police have urged other people to be wary of the trickster.
The woman, who has not been named, was fleeced out of £100.
The man approached her last Wednesday in the car park at Morrison's supermarket in Waterloo.
He offered her cheap cigarettes and she arranged to meet him at a pub in Waterloo.
They met at 3.30pm and she exchanged the cash for the cigarette packets.
But when she got home she found them stuffed with newspaper.
The man had given her a card, marked Tommy UK, with phone numbers on it.
But when she rang to complain, he just laughed.
The man was white and skinny, with long, dark hair. He had an Irish accent and drove a white Volvo.
A police spokesman said: "We are appealing for information about him - and obviously warning people to be wary."
Anyone with information should phone Huddersfield police station on 01484 436659.
