    City police warn of possible scam

    Rutland City Police are asking residents to report any unsolicited offers to perform driveway repairs.

    On two occasions during the past week, two unidentified men have approached homeowners with offers to perform cheap repair to their driveways, police Sgt. Kevin Stevens said.

    “One lady said they offered to seal her driveway at $5 per square foot,” Stevens said. “But after they did the little bit of work she needed done they said she owed them $1,800.”

    Stevens said he didn’t know the men’s names or if they were using a company name. However, he said the truck they were driving bore out-of-state license plates. He also said it wasn’t clear whether a crime had taken place since the residents hadn’t paid for the repairs. But he said the incidents were suspicious and he asked anyone who has encountered the two men to contact city police at 773-1816.

    “Unless you’re calling for a service be very cautious and get a written quote,” he said.
