Portsmouth, Va.--This morning, a man flashed a badge to a 76-year-old at his house. He said that the man's bank was going to be robbed, but he could hold onto his money for safe keeping.

The man believed the fake cop, drove to the bank, got out his money and gave it to him.

The suspect then met up with his accomplice in a gray Mercedes with North Carolina plates and took off.

Call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP if you have any information that could help police with this case.
