RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Ridgeland police are looking for two women responsible for a "pigeon drop" scam.

The two suspects are accused of convincing the victim that they found $84,000 of stocks and bonds. Police say they then talked the victim into going to their own bank and withdrawing $800 to verify the stocks and bonds. 

After receiving the money, they told the victim to meet with someone else while they did the verification. 

As soon as the victim was out of sight, the suspects took off with the victim's money.

If you have any information about this crime, please contact the Ridgeland Police Department.
