LAYTON, Utah — Layton Police hope someone will recognize a woman who is suspected of stealing property and scamming several residents at an assisted living facility last month.

According to Layton PD, the woman committed crimes at Fairfield Village of Layton Assisted Living.

A Layton PD spokesman told FOX 13 the suspect would knock on residents' doors and ask for donations for a Latter-day Saint church mission.

She then entered the apartments, continued talking with the residents and stole items like watches and cash, the spokesman said.

"She and another woman may be responsible for similar crimes at retirement communities in South Jordan and Bountiful as well," a Facebook post from Layton PD said.

The Layton PD spokesman identified the other communities as Bountiful Creekside Senior Living and South Jordan Legacy Retirement Home.

Anyone who recognizes the woman in the video (above) is urged to call Layton PD at 801-497-8300.
