BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Bellingham Police are looking for two men suspected of stealing cash from an elderly woman while pretending to repair her home.

The woman told police that a man came to her door in August and offered to fix her roof for a low price if she paid with cash.

Police say the same man returned on Monday with another man and a similar offer.

The victim paid the men in cash, and after they left she discovered they had stolen additional money while her back was turned.

The men never came back and the work was never done.

The first suspect is a tall, thin white male, about 60 years old and was driving a blue truck.

The second suspect is a short Hispanic man, about 30 years old.

He driving a small white car.

Anyone with information about these men is asked to contact the Bellingham Police Department.
