Two people who allegedly posed as prospective kitten buyers, then allegedly stole jewelry from an elderly couple in Whitby, have been arrested.

Durham Police say it happened on Monday, July 7th, when a wheelchair bound elderly woman and her husband let two people into their home, interested in buying kittens.

Once inside the home, the woman asked to use the washroom. When out of sight, she allegedly stole money, jewelry and a purse.

Less than a week later, Police arrested a 31 year old woman and 36 year old man, both from Whitby.

Tara Heffering has been charged with Theft Over $5,000; Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Over $5,000; Possession of a Schedule I Substance (heroin); and Fail to Comply with Probation. She was held for a bail hearing.

Kevin Limkilde was charged with theft over 5 thousand dollars.

He was arrested at his work, while she was later picked up in Whitby.

Police say some jewelry was recovered and has since been returned to the victim.
