San Ramon PD investigated three cases involving elderly residents targeted for their jewelry yesterday.
In all cases, an Indian female engaged the victims in conversation while draping them in fake jewelry. She then removed it and took the victims’ real jewelry along with it.
In one instance, jewelry worth an estimated $100,000 was reported taken.
Detectives are pursuing leads to identify the responsible. San Ramon police asked that readers pass this information on to family, friends, and loved ones and asked that they be encouraged to walk or exercise with someone else, or if they go out on their own, to leave valuables at home.
As always, call police immediately if you see anything suspicious, using 9-1-1 for an emergency or non-emergency dispatch at 925-973-2779.
