The 64-year-old woman told officers she was approached by the two men at the Deans Bridge Road Walmart. One of the men told her he had $90,000 in cash and he needed help because someone was trying to kill him. The woman said the man was holding a blue bandana wrapped around what appeared to be a wad of money, police said.
The woman then got into the men’s car at around 3:30 p.m. and directed them toward her home at the 2700 block of Tryon Street. While at her home, the men made off with the woman’s jewelry.
