On August 28th, Lexington Police say a man and woman went to an elderly woman's home on Price Road in Lexington, pretending to represent an official organization and asking for donations.

"She allowed them in her house and stated that she didn't have much money and at that time the male individual became confrontational with her and told her he knew she had money", says Detective Gene Haynes.

The woman then drove the homeowner to a Central Bank on New Circle Road in a newer model, charcoal gray Cadillac. She had the homeowner withdraw money.

"She completed a check in the amount of $2,800 and the female subject cashed the check. The male went into the bank acting as a lookout and pretended to be on a cell phone to see if authorities were notified in any way and once the check was cashed he left the bank", says Detective Haynes.

The homeowner was returned home unharmed, but police are hoping you recognize the man and woman in the above video.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to an arrest in this case. Call Crime Stoppers today at 859-253-2020 or dial *2020 on your AT&T wireless phone. It's a free call and you don't have to give your name, just your information.
