Police warn of scam targeting elderly

Posted: Updated:

The Tucson Police is warning residents about a confidence scheme targeting the elderly. There have been multiple reports of a suspect approaching elderly motorists in various business parking lots telling them that there is smoke coming from the rear of their vehicles. The suspect then offers to fix the problem for a large amount of money, and in some cases has driven the victims to a financial institution or to a store to buy parts.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
