Police are searching for two suspects wanted for targeting elderly women in a series of jewelry thefts in Rancho Park, Sawtelle, Pico-Robertson and Holmby Hills.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), over the last several months, West detectives have identified a string of grand thefts occurring in the Pico-Robertson, Sawtelle, Rancho Park and Holmby Hills areas.
The suspects, pictured above, primarily target elderly women who are walking on the sidewalk.
“The female suspect exits a vehicle, approaches the victim, places a gift of jewelry around the victim’s neck and/or hand and simultaneously removes the victim’s personal jewelry without permission. The suspects have been seen driving several different vehicles, possible rentals,” the LAPD said.
If you have any information regarding the suspect pictured above or believe you may have been a victim, contact LAPD Detective Saeger at (310) 444-1578.
