CROMWELL - Police in Noble County say two men scammed an elderly couple out of their cash.

They want to hear from anyone who may have been approached by the two white men in a red pickup truck with a black tank in the back.

The two offered to spray seal the couple’s driveway last Wednesday for $200. But when the job was done they asked the couple for $2,000. When the couple paid in cash, one of the men made an excuse to go back into the house and allegedly stole an additional amount of cash.

Police describe the older man as heavy set with skin tags on his eyelids. The second man was thought to be 18 to 20 years old.

Anyone who may have information about the pair is asked to call the Noble County Sheriff’s Department or the Indiana State Police.
