Criminals pose as Dunwoody employees to rob senior citizens.

This is a heart breaking story for me, please be wary of anyone who knocks on your door, trust no one and please feel free to call 911 in order verify any concern that you may have.

WSBTV Story - Thieves posing as city workers targeted an elderly Dunwoody couple, getting away with thousands of dollars in jewelry and a handgun. Still shakened, the woman told Channel 2’s Michael Buczyner that a man, posing as a city worker, came to her home Wednesday afternoon while another man waited inside a tan truck parked on her driveway. “He said he worked with the city and that they were going to be trimming trees and cutting down trees in the area,” she said. The woman said she and her husband allowed the man into their backyard after he asked to look at the trees. She said the man was speaking Spanish on a hand-held radio to the other man who was waiting inside the truck. “He cleaned me out, except for what I had on,”

I really hope these two individuals are caught but please don't let this scam catch you unaware.
