Albany-- Two con artists steal 5-thousand dollars from an elderly Albany man.

The 76 year old told Police that two men approached him at Home Depot and offered 30-thousand dollars, if he would show them good faith. The elderly man withdrew 5 thousand dollars from two banks at Dawson and Westover Roads. He last saw them when he gave them the money in the Holiday Inn parking lot across the street.

Lt. Kenn Singleton of the Albany Police Department said "Usually persons are looking for elderly, because they are so caring. They are more apt to believe that those persons are trying to run scams on them."

Albany Police warn you that con artists have swindled a number of South Georgians in recent weeks.
