Woman watches mom's robbery live on iPad

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is looking for two men who robbed an elderly West Palm Beach woman.

It happened while the woman's daughter was watching -- helplessly in real-time -- on an iPad.

Lynn Foley says she installed cameras to watch her 87-year-old mother when she was away at work. But when she flipped on her iPad a few days ago, she saw her mother being robbed by two men posing as repairmen. "I was like, 'Oh my God, someone is in her house robbing her, and I know she's there. I want to make sure she's ok,'" said Foley.

"That's just the way I am," explained Foley's mother, Vaiden Jean Cannon. "If you want to come in okay. But I'm going to quit that."

The men left before deputies could be called and stole the victim's jewelry.

The sheriff's office is using the video to try and catch the person responsible.
