Morinville RCMP is investigating a scam involving asphalt.

On Tuesday (Apr. 18), police received reports about a person selling asphalt in the area. The suspect was offering to fill or pave people's driveways at a bargain price. This scam is relevant this time of year due to thawing on driveways leaving potholes.

After asking for money upfront, the suspect cuts contact with the victims and takes the cash. 

Police believe the suspect is using a rental vehicle, with a black Dodge Ram truck being associated with the crime.

The RCMP is asking anyone with information or surveillance footage to contact their Morinville detachment.
