Tied Up and Held at Knife Point

SC - Richland County deputies are looking for a female suspect who they say tied up an elderly couple and held them at knife point early Sunday morning.

Deputies are looking for 30-year-old Jenine Obert-Pozzi, who is wanted for First Degree Burglary, Armed Robbery, Grand Larceny of a Motor Vehicle and Kidnapping.

Around 2:30 a.m., deputies responded to a home on Overbrook Drive, just off of Rosewood Drive, where an 81-year-old male and an 80-year-old female had been pushed to the ground tied up and held at knifepoint in their home by Obert-Pozzi, who is an acquaintance.

Authorities say the suspect has been to the victims' home several times in the past and was familiar enough with the victims to let her in their home.

Deputies say Obert-Pozzi tied the victims up as she began going through their personal belongings. Investigators are still trying to figure out what items were taken.

Sheriff Leon Lott says the victims were injured during the incident, but were not transported to the hospital.

Deputies say Obert-Pozzi left the scene in the victims' dark green 1996 Toyota Corolla with license plate number NG2028.

Obert-Pozzi is 5'2 and weighs 200 pounds.

If you have information know where Obert-Pozzi is, please contact CrimeStoppers, at 1-888-CRIME-SC, text a tip to "CRIMES" (274637) beginning with "TIPSC" or visit the CrimeStoppers website.

I hope they find Jenine Obert-Pozzi soon and lock her away for good.

Jenine Obert-Pozzi belongs in a state cage for the rest of her life; she is a financial predator and a coward who preys on the weak and vulnterable; she is a threat to society.

Her crimes were planned by gaining the elderly ladies' trust.

Pozzi needs to be dragged by her ankles behind an old pickup truck to court through the backwoods of South Carolina.

You can bet Pozzi is laying in wait for her next victims.

Too bad the punishment won't fit the crime when the police find this loser.
