Glendale police need help locating two suspects who scammed an 87-year-old man into handing over $1,000 in cash and his credit card number.

The man drove the suspect along with one other woman and child to his home, where he gave them the cash and his credit card number, Breeden said. He then drove them back to Walmart. Once there, the suspects fled, possibly in a white Chevrolet crew cab three-fourths-ton pickup truck.
