An 85 year old woman who lost $7,000 to driveway seal scammers on July 8th was again targeted for a theft.
The Bower Street woman contacted police to say that last evening at approximately 10:00PM a man and woman who identified themselves as “Freddy” and “Rita” came to her house and offered to help her out with the driveway. She let them inside her house and while she and her 90 year old husband were talking to “Rita” in the kitchen for approximately one hour, “Freddy” was apparently roaming the house.
When they left, the victim went into her bedroom to find several items out of place and some silver jewelry missing from her drawer. The victim described “Freddy” as a white male wearing “business clothing”. “Rita” was described as a white female wearing a red shirt and bluejeans.
Detectives are investigating the incident. Residents are warned not to let strangers into the house and to notify them about any suspicious activity.
