WEAKLEY COUNTY, TN (KFVS) -

Weakley County officials are searching for a man alleged to have scammed an elderly woman with illegitimate work.

Officials say that on July 27, the man in the attached photograph used the identifying numbers of a Clarence Worley, 49, and approached an elderly Weakley County woman near Gleason, Tennessee.

The man offered to clean the vinyl siding on her house for $300 and stated if extra chemical was needed it would be no more than $1000. 

One half of the work was done on July 27, and the job was completed on July 28. 

At this time the elderly woman was presented with a bill for $4,800. 

Fearing for her safety, the victim says she paid Worley by check, which he took to a local bank and cashed before returning to the home and picking up co-workers. 

After this was reported to the Weakley County Sheriff's Department by a concerned citizen, an investigation was started.

It has since been discovered that Worley is wanted in Carlisle County, Kentucky for the same type of crime. 

Worley was driving a light silver pickup truck that may have been a Dodge, possibly with a Kentucky license plate.

A man Worley identified as his business partner was driving a white colored pickup truck that may have been a Ford.

The business partner may have been Hispanic and had a younger male with him who also appeared Hispanic.

Investigators from the Weakley County Sheriff's Department have drawn warrants charging Worley with a felony count of theft over one thousand dollars and are seeking information about the identity of the other people involved.

If you have any information about where Worley may be located, you're asked to contact the Weakley County Sheriff's Department at 731-364-5454.
