ALPINE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- Two men claiming to represent a local roofing company tried scamming a Kent County resident, according to the Sheriff's Department.

The men approached a resident of 4 Mile Rd. NW Tuesday afternoon, offering to fix the home's roof. The home owner refused the offer and the men left. The home owner then called the roofing company and learned the men are not employees.

The Sheriff's Department asks anyone with information about a scam to call investigators at 616-632-6100.
