HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A Virginia couple is accused of trying to scam a Susquehanna Township resident out of thousands of dollars.
Police say Elizabeth and Forrest Grady told the resident they had leftover asphalt from a local job and offered to pave the resident’s driveway at roughly $700.
After the job was completed Tuesday, which reportedly did not involve any leftover asphalt, only some type of sealer, the cost rose to $7,800.
Before the final payment was made, the resident called Susquehanna Township police.
The couple was arrested and charged with conspiracy and theft by deception charges.
