NEWFANE, Vt. - The Windham County Sheriff's Department is warning residents that a man shows up to a residence to do patch work on the homeowner's driveway and overcharges them.

The man, police say, makes it seem like he was sent by someone else and doesn't disclose how much he will be charging the homeowner. In one instance, he charged someone $1,500 for using dry pack on the driveway when others in the business say it should have only cost $150.

The man frequents the Putney area. 

Anyone who has information or had a similar incident happen to them should contact the Windham County Sheriff's Department at (802)-365-4942.
