Ridgeland police are asking for your help to identify two people in a false pretense case. February 19th a female shown in surveillance video approached someone in the parking lot of a Ridgeland business claiming she could not read.
She fabricated a story about a 380 thousand dollar insurance settlement. She told the victim she would give them a percentage of the settlement if they would help her hide the money from her husband who would take it.
The victim was also asked to put up two thousand dollars of their money and place it in a bag with the settlement money as a sign of trust. It was all a pigeon drop. The bag was full of shredded paper.
Call Ridgeland police if you have any information.
