Pasco and Kennewick Detectives Think Roofing Scam Spread Statewide

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Kennewick and Pasco Police are warning law enforcement agencies across the state about a roofing scam that recently hit the Tri-Cities.

22-year-old Ricky Mitchell and 45-year-old Marc Martinelli were arrested about two weeks ago.

Police say they told victims they were putting a sealant on their roof when they were actually putting silver spray paint and in some cases a damaging chemical.

Authorities say they were targeting the elderly.

Police say they stole thousands of dollars from local people and now think their operation spread statewide.
