Police looking for theft suspects in Paducah

Paducah police say they want your help tracking down a group of men who they say entered an elderly woman’s home claiming they wanted to sell her flooring, but stole cash from her instead. 

Police say they are looking for two white men — one in his 40s and the other in his 20s — both standing between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet tall. The older man is described as having light brown hair and a receding hairline. Police say the younger man had short, black hair. 

The woman told police a man went to her door last Friday and walked into the house when she opened the door. He said he spoke to her like he knew her, and then he was joined by the second man, who he identified as his son. She said the younger man was carrying a roll of linoleum.

Police say the men later left in a large, older model black car with two other people. After they left, the woman told police she realized cash was missing from her home.
