An investigation was initiated after the Des Moines County Sheriff’s Office contacted PSLPD because one of their residents fell victim to a phone scam. The victim was contacted and informed a relative was in jail, prompting the victim to mail $8000 in cash to the suspects for the alleged bail money.

The package was later delivered to a residence in Port St. Lucie and within minutes, the two suspects pulled into the driveway. The suspects retrieved the package and began to drive away but unknown to them, detectives were watching their every move. A traffic stop was conducted, and the package was recovered from inside the suspect’s vehicle. Detectives recovered all of the $8000 in cash the victim had sent to the suspects. Dor and Richard were arrested and taken to the St. Lucie Jail. Great job to Detective Lovechio and Detective Bukata for recovering the victim’s money and apprehending the suspects!

-Don’t send or wire money to anyone you have not met before.
