ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
The victims were shopping at Freshco Supermarket in Orange City, when approached by a Hispanic male and female. The female solicited money for a surgical procedure. The male told the victims if they could help the female with her dilemma he would pay them back if they would help him cash in a winning lottery ticket. He professed to be an illegal alien and thus unable to claim the winnings.
