ELDERLY DRIVERS WARNED ABOUT HIGHWAY CON ARTISTS

Con artists have come up with their own version of highway robbery, according to Buffalo police.

A man and woman driving in a light blue 1991 Ford have been going around the city urging elderly motorists to pull over because something is wrong with their vehicles, police said.

Once a motorist stops, the thieves will first look under the hood and then ask the intended victim to drive home, at which time they attempt to bilk the motorist out of money, police said.

Officers throughout the department have been alerted to the scam and are on the lookout for the con artists.
