Three days ago, my grandpa who lives in West Palm Beach FL got robbed. They were able to take more than $5,000 of cash and ALL of his jewelry. How they did it still baffles me.
My grandpa is still a little bit dazed but here's his story. Two man approached him at a CVS pharmacy. They "hypnotized" him and told him to WALK them to his house( a good 10 blocks away). Once they arrived at the house, they instructed him to give all his money, jewelry, and cellphone to them. These men stayed outside the house while my grandpa took his money, jewelry...After they got my grandpa's belongings, they drove him back to the CVS pharmacy and drove away.
My grandpa wasn't aware of the incident until the next day. That's when his memory, little by little, started coming back. Immediately, they reported it to the cops. What the cops said is that these men used a drug called "burundanga" / "scopolamine".
I usually don't get mad easily. But when my family member is involved, it's a whole different ballgame. My grandpa got diagnosed with prostate cancer last year. I'm just glad that he didn't got hurt. Right now I'm just worried cause obviously the men knows where he lives now.
Do you guys have any suggestions to prevent this from happening to him again?Do you have a similar story to share? If anything, I want to warn you guys that this kind of stuff happens out there.
