Palisades Park police arrested a notorious con man with a history of scamming the elderly across the United States after they said he convinced an 87-year-old supermarket shopper on Friday that her car’s door locks were broken and he could fix them.
Anthony Quick, who was once featured on “America’s Most Wanted,” was charged with scamming two other Palisades Park victims, as well — one of them 87 and the other 86.
