DAVENPORT—Is a jewelry heist rumbling through Lincoln County? Not quite, but the Sheriff’s Office is warning citizens to be aware of a group that is possibly trying to pawn gold jewels off for cash.
“The scam involves what appears to be a small family showing up in communities across the country and pretending to be in need of money for gas or vehicle issues and offering what is being described as ‘solid gold jewelry for quick cash,” the Sheriff’s Office posted to Facebook Monday, Sept. 12. “In reality, they are selling costume jewelry and making away with your cash.”
