The suspect, authorities said, entered the facility and scammed the victims by acting as if she was there to clean their jewelry. The jewelry, however, was never returned.
In one incident, a victim told investigators that the offender asked her to remove her wedding rings so she could clean them. After the offender had the rings, she told the victim that she needed to put them in a towel and left the victims room. The offender even used some type of cream to remove the rings from the victims fingers. Moments went by and the victim realized that she had been scammed, and she called police. Prior to police arrival, the offender had already left the property.
MJPD investigators are asking the publics help in identifying the offender. The suspect is described as a middle-aged white female, with brown shoulder length hair. The suspect vehicle is described as a late 1990s model two-door Honda or Acura hatchback car that is light blue or purple in color with side graphics.
