(KMOV)-- Police are looking for the scam artist who allegedly went with an elderly man to a bank to take $5,000 from him.
Arnold police say the scammer walked up to his victim outside his home on Monday and told the man it looked like he needed to fix his roof.
The suspect climbed onto the roof and pointed to what he claimed was damage. Then the suspect went with the victim to get cash for a down payment on the repair work.
Arnold police said several other departments reported similar scams.
