State police are seeking information on two men who conned an elderly Hempfield Township woman out of a large amount of money Wednesday.

Police said about 2 p.m. two males, believed to be Hispanic, went to the 80-year-old woman's home and told her they were there to do repairs.

“They advised the woman they were with a home warranty insurance company and were going to do roof work,” said Trooper Steve Limani.

Police said when the men entered the home, one distracted the woman and the other took an undisclosed amount of money from the home.

The men left in a green pickup truck with a cap on the back.

Limani said one man is about 5 feet 11 inches tall and in his 50s, while the other is about 5 feet 8 inches tall, has missing teeth, and may be in his 20s. The victim said both spoke broken English.

Anyone with information is asked to telephone state police at (724) 832-3288.
