YCSO Looking For Two Suspects Who Tried To Scam An Elderly Dewey Couple

Two men are wanted after scamming an elderly Dewey couple near the Prescott Valley Walmart Tuesday. Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials say the couple was flagged down near the store on Glassford Hill Road by a man in a newer model Chevy pickup. He told them he noticed some damage to their car and asked if they would like it fixed, saying he had a connection with the local Honda dealer. The man followed the couple to their home where they were greeted by a second man, who helped them carry groceries in. The two men worked on their car, replacing two body panel clips. They then told the couple it would cost them $55-hundred dollars and they would follow them to the bank to get the money. The female victim refused and went into a bedroom and called the dealership to find out if the two were legitimate. While on the phone, one of the suspects barged in and asked her who she was talking to. The suspects negotiated the price down to $800, but then left after the couple didn’t pay them. The suspects were in their 40s, one was a larger man while the other was smaller and had a small mustache. Both were about six-feet tall. If anyone has information on their whereabouts, call the Yavapai Sheriff’s Office at (928) 771-3260 or Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232.
