Police Warn of "Roofers" That Are Common Thieves

We have a warning about two men who say they work for a roofing company, but are simply out to rob their victims.

A woman told Tyler Police the pair came to her home, claiming to be looking for leaks and damage.  During their visit, one of the men excused himself to check other rooms. After they left, the woman realized her wallet was missing.

The two white men in their twenties were seen in an older tan GMC pickup with flames on the front end and a snap-on tarp on the truck's bed.

Police say never to let someone into your home you haven't invited.
