Kent County Sheriff Warns of Scam Targeting Elderly
People in Kent County need to be on the lookout for a scam, specifically one targeting the elderly.
The Kent County Sheriff's Office posted the warning on their Facebook page.
Two Hispanic men are approaching people, posed as contractors, and telling them that the exterior of their house needs work. While one man distracts the homeowner and gets him outside, the other goes inside to steal money.
The suspects are said to be driving a silver or grey Chevy pickup truck.
So far there have been reports from Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo & Lansing. The Sheriff's department recommends all homeowners be cautious and to especially warn the elderly residents.
