Lewis County Paving Scam

The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office says they’ve received reports of a frequent summertime scam running in the area. Chief Deputy Rob Power says men have been reported in the Canton area, driving a red pickup truck with Missouri plates, offering to sell and lay asphalt millings, or chat. He says there is no roadwork being done in the area that would have leftover materials as the men claim, and that they are resorting to high-pressure tactics to try and con residents.
