Thieves use blind date to rob victim
A Michigan man and his girlfriend cooked up a scam to rob a man’s home while he was out enjoying a date.
First the criminal couple used MySpace to set up a blind date between the female perpetrator and the victim.
When the female met the victim at his home, she asked to use his bathroom and secretly unlocked the bathroom window. She and the victim then went out for a bite to eat, while she no doubt watched the clock carefully.
Meanwhile, the female’s real boyfriend, a guy who just got out of prison about two years ago, went to the victim’s home, entered through the unlocked window and stocked up on his valuables.
Criminal creativity abounds. Beware of people you meet on line. They may be up to no good.
