Cops are looking for two female
serial swindlers who
looted jewelry from unsuspecting
victims in southern Brooklyn.
The trail of heists began
on April 17, when the suspects
drove up to an 84-year-old
woman near 67th Street and
Ninth Avenue and “proposed
a trade” at around 2:25 pm, according
to police. One of the
baddies then placed a necklace
around the victim’s neck, while
the other crook took the woman’s
necklace — valued at $1,500
— off of her neck without her
permission, before hopping into
their SUV and driving off.
The duo struck again the
following day at around 1:30
pm, when they approached a
68-year-old female near 64th
Street between Seventh and
Eighth avenues — again “proposing
a trade,” according to
police. The crooks then wrap a
chain around the victim’s wrist,
while removing her bracelet —
valued at around $1,000 — and
Robberies in the 68th Precinct,
where the weekend’s incidents
occurred, had been falling,
with just 13 between Jan.
1 and April 11, compared to 17
during the same timeframe last
year, according to NYPD statics.
