Iberia Detectives Investigating Possible Scam
Detectives with the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office Elderly Abuse Protection Unit are investigating a possible scam that was reported yesterday from the owner of a home on Weeks Island Road.
The woman says two men came to her door offering to empty her septic tank for $200.
The victim says during the work, the suspects then told her the price of the job was going up to $2,000.
Witnesses in that area told detectives two while males were seen going to different homes in that same area offering those same services.
The suspects are described as two white males, the first is between 25 to 35 years old and the second is between 60 to 70 years old.
Witnesses tell police the suspects were seen driving a newer model red Chevy Silverado "dually" pickup truck.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office at 337-369-3711.
