MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Two suspects are wanted in connection to a pigeon drop scam, targeting an 88-year-old woman.

Montgomery investigators released photos of the suspects. They advise the female suspect approached the victim, claiming to have found a bag of money, and, through an elaborate series of events, the victim was convinced to withdraw a large sum of cash from her own bank account.

The male suspect escorted the victim to her bank where she withdrew the money, and it was later stolen by the suspects.
