The male subjects picked out several pieces of gold and requested they be wrapped in tissue and placed in a box. The male subjects then requested to look at silver coins.
The subjects wanted to purchase more gold than they had in cash and requested the victim to hold the gold for them while they went to the bank to get the additional cash. The subjects left a $500 deposit before leaving the store.
When the males did not return, it was discovered that the gold in the box had been replaced with silver coins. Total loss was $22,750 in gold.
Based upon the MO, NCIC believes the two suspects were Romanian nationals. The victim advised the heavy set male had a tattoo on his forearm with the letters”ISAC”.
