Fake Repairmen Steal From Kirby Store Employees

February 17, 2010

Two employees of MyFitFoods were duped last week when fake repairmen gained their trust, but then took off with their purses.

The women called police on Feb. 10 and said that two men came to the store on Kirby Drive and said they were there to repair the roof. The men acted like they were working for a while, and then they left to throw out the trash. The men never returned, and then the employees discovered their purses were missing.

Other incidents reported to police from Feb. 8 to 15 include:

  • On Feb. 9, officers responded to a fight between juveniles on Annapolis Court. Police arrested one juvenile and charged the suspect with assault.
  • On Feb. 10, a resident visited the police station to report that someone had tried to break into his car in the 6400 block of Annapolis.
  • On Feb. 10, officers responded to the 5600 block of Kirby Drive because someone broke into a resident’s car and stole a GPS unit.
  • On Feb. 11, a resident called police to the 3600 block of Georgetown because someone took personal items from their vehicle parked in the driveway.
