Spring, Texas – June 24, 2019: Deputy constables are on the lookout for a man accused of scamming an elderly woman out of $35,000.00.

According to investigators with the Harris County Precinct 4 Constables Office, a male contacted the woman claiming to be a federal agent and said that her social security number had been used in a money laundering and drug trafficking case. The suspect then told her she needed to pay money to remove a warrant in her name.

The woman, fearful of being arrested, proceeded to send the suspect a check to an address that he provided. Investigators later identified the location as a Walgreens Store on Westheimer Road.

In total, the victim sent the man $35,000.00.

Constable Deputies were able to recover video surveillance from the Walgreens of the suspect picking up the packages. Deputies are currently on the lookout for him.

According to video footage, the suspect is described as a male with dark hair, a dark-colored beard, and mustache, and wears glasses. He is between 6’ and 6’2” and weighs between 225-250 pounds.
