Suspect arrested for allegedly scamming senior citizen


Kansas City police have arrested Anthony C. Washington, who is accused of cheating a senior citizen out of $4,000, Jackson County prosecutors report. Washington allegedly promised to help a 78-year-old man out of a reverse mortgage, only to bilk him and steal his checks. Officers with Kansas City's fugitive apprehension unit arrested Washington when he appeared for a bond-revocation hearing on Friday. His bond has been set at $150,000. (Here's a story I wrote about Washington last week.)
