The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information on individuals who are targeting the elderly possible posing as telephone workers or potentially state workers. Suspects lure victims outside, and usually behind their home while another suspect enters the home. The suspect that is with the victim behind the house then receives a phone call and says he has to leave. (This is possibly the other suspect calling to let him know he has gained the cash he was looking for).
Suspects described as two white males; both in their 50’s; one with a grey beard; operating a tan or light colored pickup truck, maybe 2005 model GMC Canyon, with a ladder and black plastic in the bed of the truck.
The Jackson County incident took place on May 3, 2015 around 530pm in the Glenville Community. Investigators are in contact with Habersham County, Georgia who also may have similar incidents.
If anyone has further information or may have been a target of these suspects, please contact Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Detective Andi Green at 828-586-1392.
