Two Hartford men were arrested for allegedly trying to scam a 77-year-old woman out of $10,000.
Irvington police say the victim was contacted by a woman who claimed to be her grandson’s attorney, asking for money to bail her grandson out of a bogus arrest.
The victim contacted police and surveillance was set up at the woman's home, where Kylo Simons and Rayshawn McFarlane allegedly posed as probation officers coming to collect the funds.
They're now facing grand larceny charges and are due back in court Feb. 7.
