Campbell police investigate suspected remodeling scam

Posted: Updated:

CAMPBELL, Ohio - Police are investigating a possible scam designed to gain access to a home in the city.

A woman tells police that a man came to the door of her Porter Avenue home just before 9 a.m. on Monday claiming that her husband had asked for an estimate on remodeling the home's bathroom.

The woman told the man that her husband wasn't home and asked him to leave a business card, but he insisted on coming inside the home.

The woman shut the door, and said when she looked outside, the man was gone.

Police believe that the suspect may have been trying to gain access to the home.

They describe the man as a white male in his mid 30s.
