SPD warns elderly of deceitful women

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - Sylvester Police are warning people to watch out for women targeting elderly homeowners.

Investigators are currently working several cases where women told false stories to get inside the homes of elderly victims.

Two of the women are described as pregnant and in their early to mid 20s.

Investigators say they work alone and in pairs.

"Once inside the home, the suspects are stealing money and property from our homeowners. We encourage all homeowners to keep windows locked and not open up their homes to strangers," said Sgt. J.C. Shiver.

Investigators have been looking into these cases for about a month and a half and have received several calls from the city and county.

Contact the Sylvester Police Department at 776-8500 if you have any information or Crime Stoppers at 436-TIPS (8477).
