Police in Noble County Seeking Information About Driveway Sealing Scammers

NOBLE COUNTY, Ind. (WOWO): Indiana State Police and the Noble County Sheriff's Department are asking the public's help identifying two men, believed to be a father-son duo, who they say have been soliciting their paving services, and in doing so, allegedly bilked an elderly couple out of thousands of dollars. Officers say last Wednesday, July 9th, two white men were in the Cromwell area when they offered to spray blacktop sealer on top of an elderly couple's gravel driveway. They quoted the couple approximately $200 for the job, but upon its completion asked for approximately $2,000. After they were paid, one of the men went back into the home where it is alleged that he stole money. One of the men, the older of the two, is described as heavy-set with skin tags on his eyelids, and the second is described as being possibly between 18 and 20 years of age. The two were said to have been in a red Ford pickup truck with a black tank in the bed. Anyone with information about the men is asked to contact Indiana State Police at either (260) 432-8661 or (800) 552-0976, or the Noble County Sheriff's Department at (260) 636-2182.
