Po­lice in Tripoli, in the Pelo­pon­nese, yes­ter­day de­tained two men, aged 39 and 40, be­lieved to be mem­bers of a crim­i­nal racket that has been de­fraud­ing el­derly res­i­dents of the broader re­gion by pos­ing as em­ploy­ees of the Pub­lic Power Cor­po­ra­tion. Ac­cord­ing to po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tors, the sus­pects vis­ited their vic­tims at their homes and ad­vised them to put their cash and valu­ables some­where safe as a net­work dys­func­tion could cause a fire. They would then dis­tract their vic­tims, pocket the valu­ables and flee, po­lice said. Au­thor­i­ties are seek­ing another 25-year-old man be­lieved to have worked as their ac­com­plice.
