Police say three men used a phony furniture business to enter a Danville woman's house and make off with cash and a firearm Monday afternoon.
Vernocia Neal, 92, told police that three unknown white males came to her home at 214 Stanford Road about 4 p.m. and asked to come in to show her a rug and tell her about a new furniture store they were opening near Walmart.
"They came to the door and said they were organizing a store," Neal said. "I was busy with something else when they came to the door, so it took me by surprise."
Neal said two of the men distracted her and shielded her vision from a third man who was not present when the other two entered the home. Neal said the third man went into her bedroom and took an undetermined amount of money and a firearm.
