Sheriff’s deputies are warning area residents about a new asphalt contractor scam. Someone offers to cheaply repair, lay asphalt or seal a driveway, saying they just finished a job nearby and have some leftover. They take payment and use a sealant that is so thin, it will wash away in the next rain. If the resident refuses to pay, they’ve tried to intimidate them and have been preying on the elderly. Call 9-1-1, if you see any of this kind of activity.
