Cop Impersonators Blamed for Scam

By  | 

The Ingham County Sheriff's Office says an African-American male in his mid 40's and an African-American female in her mid 30's are to blame for the possible extortion of an 83 year old Delhi Township widow.

Detectives say the two masqueraded as cops claiming to be on an investigation.

Authorities say the two conned their way into having the elderly woman drive to the bank and withdrawal about $9,000.

Detectives say the two then stole the money and left the 83 year old and may have done the same in the Western side of the state.
