COCONUT CREEK, Florida. – The police are on the hunt for two distraction thieves.
Coconut Creek Police are releasing sketches of a man and woman they say robbed a 94-year-old woman last month.
Investigators say the couple posed as landscape gardeners and told the victim they were hired by their homeowners’ association.
But police say it was just a ploy to gain access to her home. They then stole the victim’s jewelry box and other valuables.
Coconut Creek Police say this is the fourth such crime targeting the elderly since March.
Anyone with information or who believes they identify any of the criminals is urged to contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
