Jewelry scam alerts Yuma PD

Suspects currently organizing widespread scam around city

YUMA, Ariz (KYMA, KECY) - Police say there's at least one man and one woman involved in this scam.

Officers say they approach people on the street, claiming they are stranded and in need of help to return to their home in Texas.

Once they're given a small amount of cash, they then attempt to sell the jewelry by inflating the price for more than the jewelry is actually worth when brought to Yuma area pawn shops.

Police say it's low-end costume jewelry.

Police say they've already scammed people out of two-thousand dollars.

They say it's happening throughout the city.
At this time we don't know how many victims or potential victims have been involved.
If you have any information call 78-crime to remain anonymous.
