Police warn of elderly scam

FRANKLINTON Detectives say two men in a white pickup truck have been knocking on doors soliciting home repair work. They ask for a $35 fee, and then do no work or substandard work. They also recommend expensive repairs that they tell the victim must be done straight away.

Police say they've gotten complaints from four different victims.

Anyone who sees the men is asked to call Franklinton police at (919) 494-2151.
