Officials with the Wise County Sheriff's Office are looking for a man they say asks elderly people for money with no intention of paying them back. Last Saturday, officials say they had multiple reports of a man approaching elderly people in store parking lots and asking them for money claiming he needs money to help fix a broken car and will pay them back. But police say he takes the money and leaves.
The thefts took place in the Walmart parking lot in Norton, Va. and in the parking lot of Ollie's Bargain Outlet in Wise, Va.
If you have any information, you are asked to contact Sgt. Ryan Phillips at (276) 328-3756 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
