ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Two men are accused of targeting the elderly in a home repair scam. Now investigators want to know if there are more victims.

George Fogle and William Riley are charged with felony exploitation of an elderly person. Police say the men told an elderly Lincoln County woman she needed work on her lightning rods and ended up charging $1,800 before any work was done.  They took the check, cashed it, and never returned.

Police have William Riley under arrest.  George Fogle is still at large.

Investigators say the pair has a history of taking advantage of elderly people in Missouri and want anyone who may have been victimized by the men to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
