MIAMI (WSVN) - A crook stole firearms from a home in Miami after, police said, he duped a woman in her 90s at the door.

According to Miami Police, the subject entered the victim’s home, located along Southwest 38th Court and Second Street, Jan. 31.

Investigators said the victim, who suffers from dementia, let him in thinking he was a family member.

Police said the man, who was dressed in work gear, asked an elderly woman if he could use her bathroom.

Once inside, detectives said, he stole three weapons belonging to her son, Manny Fresnedo, as well as jewelry, cash and credit cards.

“I was extremely upset, you know, that someone would take advantage of a 94-year-old person like that, enter your home, your safe haven,” said Fresnedo. “It was just an upsetting moment for myself and my mom, for everybody.”

Authorities said the thief took off in an older model white Ford F-350 utility truck.

If you have any information on the crook’s identity or whereabouts, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward of up to $5,000.
