Roof-Scam Artist Found Guilty

A Smith County jury has found 19-year old Eugene Tyson Acker guilty in a January break-in involving an elderly woman. Authorities say Acker and another suspect knocked on an 82-year old woman's door, claiming to be roofers. The pair then pushed their way inside and tried to steal from the woman's purse. The grandma managed to chase the two men out of her home with a shotgun and call authorities.
