90-Year-Old Woman Robbed, Police Searching For Suspect


Pueblo police are wanting help in finding a woman who robbed a 90-year-old Good Samaritan.

On August 13, a 90-year-old woman was approached by a woman needing a ride, claiming her tire was flat. The victim wanted to help the woman out, so she offered her a ride. Once the suspect was gone, the victim realized that her wallet, which contained credit cards and a checkbook, was missing.

On August 19, the victim read an article about an incident similar to the crime she had just experienced. The suspect in the article matched the woman the victim had encountered.

The woman has been described as white and heavy-set. She has cashed a few of the victims checks at different grocery stores all located on the south side of Pueblo. Det. Scott Vahlbush said that it is not known at this time if the two cases are related, but that there is a possibility.

If anyone has any information that could help police solve this crime, call the Pueblo Crime Stoppers at 542-STOP.

    Perhaps if we had a definitive weight range for "heavy-set" it would be helpful. Are we talking 20 pounds or are we talking morbidly obese? This would at least narrow down the suspect group to a little smaller.

    that is true there are fat Heavy set women every were you look. I guess that why she took it on herself to bother a 90yr old because if she had taking on a younger person she wouldn't have made it to far.

    "The woman has been described as white and heavy-set." Yeah that's real helpful. Heavy-set (fat) white women are everywhere you look.

    "Heavy set ?" Just go to the closest Wal-Mart or McDonalds-she'll be there.

    White and heavy-set. Well, that description narrows it down.

    They'll figure out who the bimbo and nail her. You just can't help anyone anymore. However, I think this perpetrator needs help with a kick in the rear right to jail. Idiot!
