Police search for three men in home improvement scam

By Heartland News

PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - Paducah police need your help identifying three men they say tricked someone to get inside their home.

Police say a man approached a resident looking for home improvement work. 

A second person came into the home to distract the victim while a man stole some jewelry, according to police.

Police say the two men left in a dark gray Jeep with a third man who remained outside.

If you have information about this crime, please call police at 270-444-8550 or 270-443-TELL.

Because of January's ice storm and upcoming warmer spring weather, police remind everyone to be aware of home improvment scams and to contact police if anyone suspicious approaches you.
