Murfreesboro, TN - Murfreesboro Police are reaching out to the community for help in identifying two individuals wanted for questioning regarding an incident involving the exploitation of a visually impaired woman. The suspects, currently unknown, allegedly approached the victim's residence, knocking on her door and falsely claiming to be law enforcement officers armed with a search warrant.


Trusting the supposed authority figures, the victim allowed the individuals into her home. However, the situation took a disturbing turn, as on the same day, the victim's debit card was used for multiple fraudulent withdrawals at an ATM situated inside a Mapco convenience store on Memorial Blvd. In addition to the unauthorized ATM transactions, the suspect(s) engaged in several fraudulent transactions using the Cash App.
