McLean Police District – Police are searching for a stolen car they believe was taken by two men who scammed an 89-year-old woman out of an undisclosed amount of cash and then stole her car on Thursday evening, September 31. The investigation determined the victim was driving in the morning and got lost in the Leesburg area. Two men offered to escort her home in her vehicle for a fee. She agreed and the men returned the victim to her home in the area of Hopewood Drive and Rosecroft Place, where she handed over the cash. The next day, family members visited the victim and noticed her car was missing. Further investigation revealed that the car key had been taken off of the key ring.

The two men were described as white, between 40 and 50 years old and about 6 feet tall. The stolen car is a 2000 silver Mercedes-Benz E320 with Virginia license plate number 426-2000. Attached is a computer version of what the actual license plate would look like.
