Longview Police say autistic, elderly woman was defrauded


Released by Longview police: 

On February 21, 2012 an Officer was dispatched to 107 Mumford in reference to an assist citizen call.  The Officer was told by the victim, Diana Lawrence, that a man known to her as Danny Young, came to her house and offered to pave her driveway for a fee. Once the driveway was done he informed the victim that the charge would be $6,000.00.  He told the victim that there would need to be more work done which would, in turn, cost more money.  Ms. Lawrence then learned that the suspect had not repaved her driveway correctly and the substance he used simply crumbled away.  Mr. Young, whose company is Danny's Paving located in Texarkana, Texas, has several employees that also work for him and may be driving a blue cab truck or a dump truck with a red dumping bed on it.  Longview Police have also learned that there may be more victims who have been defrauded by Danny Young.  If someone feels they may have also been a victim of Mr. Young or have more information on Danny Young they are asked to contact Sgt. David Hazel at (903) 235-0303.
