Car Parts Scam in Sunnyside

Posted: Updated:

SUNNYSIDE, Wash.--  Sunnyside police are warning about a car parts scam that's been reported in the area.

Officers say someone is walking up to people in their driveway, telling them their car has an oil leak, and claiming they can repair it if you give them money for the parts.  Once they take the money, they never come back to fix the car.

Police say the suspect is a white male driving a white van.  He's been targeting neighborhoods where a lot of elderly citizens live.

If you're approached by the man, don't give him money and call police right away.
