Marion County Sheriff alerting public to new scam

MARION COUNTY, IL — The Marion County Sheriff’s Office is alerting the public to a possible scam in the area.

According to Lt. Anthony Decker, they spoke to the victim of a scam Tuesday who said he was weed eating at his residence when a beige Yukon pulled up with a male driver and a female passenger. The alleged suspect(s) offered to sell him some gold jewelry and they negotiated the price of $600. Then on Tuesday, the victim went to the jewelry store only to find out that the jewelry was fake.  

He was reportedly told by employees at the jewelry shop that several others have fallen victim to this same scam in this area and have also mentioned a black Cadillac passenger car.
