Two Houston men are accused in a "pigeon drop" scheme after witnesses say they observed unusual behavior at a bank on Highway 14 in Lake Charles.
A "pigeon drop" is a scam in which a person is persuaded to give up a sum of money with the promise of a larger sum of money or valuable object.
Police say they found the two suspects with the victim behind the bank, and there was enough evidence to make an arrest.
