Asphalt scam leads to theft in Bloomfield, resident reports


Indiana State Police are warning Hoosiers of an asphalt scam in the Southern Indiana area.

On the afternoon of Wednesday, July 26th, a Bloomfield resident contacted the Greene County Sheriff’s Office and reported that three men representing themselves as an asphalt company offered to reseal a driveway.  While two of the individuals distracted the victim, the third man entered the residence and stole money and valuables.

The victim stated the three subjects were observed in a white four-door F-150 pickup truck with a red 4×4 emblem. The males were described as possibly white, two of them with a darker tanned appearance, and one as tall wearing a high-visible orange shirt.

If any subjects approach Hoosier homeowners in the above-described method or if a vehicle matching the description of the one shown below is observed, please immediately contact the Indiana State Police Bloomington Post (812-332-4411), Indiana State Police Jasper Post (812-482-1441), Indiana State Police Evansville Post (812-867-2079) or any local law enforcement agency.
