BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The elderly continue to be preyed upon in Boca Raton, with the latest attack happening in the 600 block of Southwest 2nd Avenue
Police tell us that a man — only identified as white or hispanic — tried to sell an elderly homeowner his “tree trimming” services when a second person walked into the home and stole $1,000 in cash and roughly $50,000 in fine jewelry.
The thuggish thief used a pillow case — from the home — to steal the goods.
The alleged “tree trimmer” left the area in a newer model Hyundai sedan with dark tinted windows.
