PLANO - Police in Plano are looking for two alleged thieves suspected of luring elderly people out of their homes so they can steal their credit cars.

Authorities released surveillance images of a man and woman, who are often seen wearing medical scrubs, allegedly using the stolen credit cards in various stores across North Texas. The pair have also been seen in a silver sedan-style vehicle with dark tinted windows.

Plano police said in one incident, a 77-year-old woman told authorities she left her apartment after receiving a call saying there was a large package waiting for her in the mail room. The victim said when she returned back to her apartment, her credit cards were missing. A similar case was reported by a 94-year-old man at his apartment complex in the 1900 block of West Spring Parkway.

Similar incidents have been reported in Flower Mound, Irving, Mesquite and Dallas.
