Police looking for man who allegedly scammed elderly woman out of $5,000


Police are asking for help identifying a suspect who allegedly took advantage of an eighty-five year old elderly female.

According to police, he went on her roof and told her that she needed lots of work done. This individual had a white female and another white male with him during this incident.

The males in this case went on the roof, spray painted the louvers, and charged the elderly lady almost $5000.00. He then drove her to the bank in her car and she paid him the money.

The very next day he came back and told her that she needed to have her driveway sealed and told her it was going to cost her approximately $4000.00. Thankfully, she declined the work.

This white male has some sort of tattoo on his neck and is of a medium build, driving a white or silver colored truck (possibly Ford) outfitted with lots of chrome. This truck is either extended cab or double cab.

If you can identify this individual please contact TAPD at 903-798-3154.
