Akron, OH – We are really living in some hard and desperate times when people will steal from the elderly in the middle of a global pandemic! Well that was the case for this 60-year-old man.
The elderly gentlemen got a ride from a male and female to cash his stimulus check at the Starz Market, on the 300 block of East Exchange, near downtown Akron.
The victim told the police he went inside to cash his check, and as soon as he had the money in his hand… the male suspect (who had given him a ride) snatched the money out of his hand and ran out of the store.
The suspect is about 20-25 years old, 5’10” and roughly 150 pounds. He left the area is a green Toyota Camry driven by the unidentified female. There is a piece of plastic covering the driver window. Luckily no one was injured.
