SUFFOLK -- Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a Suffolk man wanted in connection with a scam that resulted in a financial loss of thousands.
The request for assistance comes in reference to an ongoing fraud investigation by the Suffolk Police Department.
Frank Small, 47, is wanted on charges of robbery and conspiracy to commit a felony.
Police have received information that multiple subjects, including Small, have been approaching residences and providing unsolicited estimates for the delivery of small amounts of gravel “left over from a recent job in the area”.
Their targets are citizens with dirt or gravel driveways in need of repair. Once the citizen agrees to the receipt of the excess gravel, a much larger amount of gravel is delivered and a substantially higher amount of money is demanded, police said.
The subjects are also believed to have approached several citizens who denied their services.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Line at 1-888-Lock-U-Up.
