Scam Alert

The Yakima Police Department is warning residents to beware of thieves, posing as medical nurses.

The thieves are targeting elderly residents by posing as representatives of a local doctor’s office. They come to the residence and tell the resident that they are there to evaluate either a piece of medical equipment or the resident themselves. While one of the men occupy the resident the two other men go through the house stealing items.

They seem to be targeting homes in West Yakima. The latest incident took place yesterday.

The Yakima Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify and arrest these suspects. They are identified as three Hispanic males driving a white S.U.V.

If you have any information on these suspects you are asked to call 911.
