Home Repair Scam In East Peoria

Police are warning people in East Peoria about a possible scam.

East Peoria Police say a Chicago-based group is in town soliciting homeowners to do driveway sealcoating and tree trimming, but their services are often not completed or poorly done.

And, in some cases, the workers serve as a distraction while others in the group commit burglaries at the same time.

The group is said to be targeting the elderly.

If you have been a victim of the scam, or notice anything suspicious in your neighborhood, contact East Peoria Police at 698-4700 or the Tazewell County Sheriff's Office at 478-5600.
