A white male in his 50s with a medium build has scammed two separate women with unneccessary car repairs over the past two days, Officer Leo Ramirez of the Lodi Police Department said Wednesday.
The man has approached both the victims and said their cars were smoking. He then said he could perform on-the-spot repairs, Ramirez said.
The man tells the victims their car's electrical control switch is responsible, Ramirez said. The suspect was possibly driving a red and grey pickup, police reported.
