GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Greer woman pretended to be a social services worker, asking the victim about her drugs and if she was on food stamps in order to steal from her, according to police.

Greenville police said 47-year-old Christine Deyoung went door-to-door at Towers East on North Main Street on Sunday before a victim became suspicious and called law enforcement.

According to her arrest warrants, Deyoung told the victim she was a Department of Social Services worker and was let into her home.

Deyoung asked her questions about her living conditions, if she was on food stamps then asked to see her medications, police said. When the victim showed her the pills, Deyoung poured them on the floor then put one in her mouth, police said.

Deyoung did not have any proof of employment, police said.

Police arrested Deyoung and charged her with securing property by fraudulent impersonation of an officer, possession of schedule II narcotic and possession of schedule IV narcotic.
