The eleven recipients were awarded the Distinguished Service Medal for their exceptional work, their dedication to the Monrovia Police Department, and their commitment to the community of Monrovia.
There are two different variations of this scam. The first is when the victim parks their vehicle and a male subject (the scammer) either parks next to the victim or approaches the victim’s driver side front door on foot. The scammer tells the victim that something is wrong with their vehicle, and in some cases, the victim could not close their driver side front door. One victim reported seeing the scammer holding a small screwdriver, possibly what the scammer used to prevent the victim from closing their door.
