A former Stratford conman who has admitted ripping off elderly people remains under investigation.

Steven Francis Younger, 45, was convicted of five fraud charges involving more than $50,000 in the New Plymouth District Court on Wednesday.

Younger had been facing 16 fraud charges but halfway through his trial pleaded guilty after the charges were reduced to five.

Two charges involved fraudulently getting loans from people in their 80s when he had no money to repay them.

Detective Drew Bennett, of the Stratford CIB, said yesterday investigations into Younger's activities were ongoing. Anyone with information was asked to contact him at the Stratford police station.

Younger was bailed to an Auckland address and will appear for sentence on May 16.

What do you think of Maori trying to restrict access to the breakwater?

It's a ridiculous move and won't help.

Good on them for standing up for themselves.

It's a non-issue since they can't fully cut off access.

Don't know, don't care
