Police warn of scam involving 'asphalt pavers' crew showing up on the city's north side

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police are warning of a recent scam that has been occurring on the city's north side.

Police say crews identifying themselves as asphalt pavers have shown up in neighborhoods claiming to have a fresh batch of asphalt.

The crews say they'll sell the asphalt to homeowners for a cheap price, but they'll then demand more money.

Police are recommending that you do not take the crew up on their offer -- and instead use a reputable company.

If you have concerns about the crew -- you're asked to call police.
