Gender-bending thief targets Atlanta assisted living facilities

An androgynous thief has been targeting Atlanta-area assisted living facilities, according to local reports.

It's unclear from the surveillance video if the thief, donned in nursing scrubs, an identification badge and what appears to be a large black curly wig, is a man or a woman. But one thing is certain: three assisted living centers in the Atlanta area have reported cases of theft or attempted theft, including stolen credit cards. 

Police told a local NBC television station that they don't know who this person is, but they think the individual could be working with one or two other people. A similar crime ring struck Denver nursing homes in August, when a group of men dressed as women were implicated in 20 incidents of theft.

Surveillance video of the thief can be seen here.
