Wayne County deputies say a South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division agent was watching WITN-TV when he recognized three men who scammed an elderly woman earlier this month.
After the pictures were broadcast on WITN, the SLED senior agent was able to identify the three as members of an Irish Travelers community in Aiken, SC. Deputies now have warrants out for Jimmy Riley, Tommy Mack and Michael O'Hara.
Deputies say the trio came to the 86-year-old's Rosewood area home on the pretext that they had opened a new vinyl business. Once inside one of the man managed to steal a safe while the woman was distracted.
If anyone knows their whereabouts, they should contact the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office at 919-731-1481 or Wayne County Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255.
