GRPD: Be aware of scam targeting the elderly
News


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- Police are investigating two separate reports of larceny targeting elderly people who live alone. Both incidents happened in the last four weeks.

The scam involves men posing as contractors. Police say one man distracts the resident, while the others enter the home and steals valuables.

Specific dates and addresses are not being released at this time.

Kalamazoo police are also investigating a similar crime.

The Grand Rapids Police Department wants to warn the public so they don't fall victim to the scam. They said in a press release Thursday, if you did not hire a contractor to come to your home, do not let anyone you do not know inside.
