TYNGSBOROUGH — Local authorities issued a warning on Tuesday about a man and woman team suspected of robbing unsuspecting individuals, particularly the elderly, by using deception to steal their jewelry.

The Tyngsborough Police Department reported that the duo approaches potential victims in a friendly manner, often calling them over to their vehicle to engage in conversation.

The police are seeking the public’s assistance in spreading awareness about these crimes to help protect vulnerable community members, particularly senior citizens.
