Officials warn about gravel scam

WEST FELICIANA, LA (WAFB) - The West Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office is warning about a scam involving men trying to sell gravel to unsuspecting citizens.

Officials say that they have taken several calls from residents concerning men trying to sell "extra gravel" from a recently done construction job for their driveways.

Officers say that the group would charge overly expensive prices for the rocks, and then they would bully or threaten their victim until they paid.

Deputies are asking anyone who comes into contact with the men to refuse the service and then call dispatch right away. That number is 225-784-3136.
