Thieves targeting elderly victims may become elderly in jail

“Individuals were posing as TXU or Oncor workers to enter the homes of the elderly. They would take jewelry and cash while the victim was distracted. Our victim lost her husband’s wedding band who had just recently passed away. Leads found the ring at a business and led us to the suspects. The story was covered on Channel 4 news, which led to multiple agencies nationwide calling us about these same people who victimized them. How’s that for a success story?!”
