Robbers Pose As Flower Deliverymen

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York police say two burglars used flowers not to win their way into a woman's heart but into her home.

Posing as deliverymen from and armed with bouquets, the men persuaded the 80-year-old woman to open her door by saying the flowers were from her husband. She was home alone at the time.

Once inside, the thieves bound her hands and feet and ransacked the house until they found the $60,000 in savings her husband had kept in cash.

Police have released a surveillance camera photo of the suspects. They believe the men are between 20 and 30 years old.

The husband says he had planned to take the cash to a bank. He had mentioned the money to someone and says he believes that remark may have led to the robbery.
