Two suspected thieves wanted for a fake gold scam in Fullerton may have struck again in the Los Angeles County. A Torrance jewelry store owner said she was victimized by the same two men who were caught on surveillance tape carrying out a "Bait and Switch" operation last month at a Fullerton store.

Police say the men were selling gold jewelry to the owner. When the owner stepped away, one of the suspects switched the bags. The suspects fled with the cash and the store was left with a bag of fake jewelry.

Anyone with information was urged to call Fullerton police at (714) 738-6715.
