Two men sit in Laurel County Jail accused in a string of scams in Southern Kentucky. Police say the men are part of a group called the Irish Travelers, which may be responsible for crimes in several other states as well.
Charles Ingle, 86, says seven years ago he was scammed by a man named Paul O'Hara. Ingle says O'Hara demanded $5,000 for a paint job initially quoted for $250.
Ingle's daughter, Joann True, says she did what she could to find the man she says was responsible but had no luck.
Now a Paul O'Hara sits in the Laurel County jail with brother Billy. Police say the two may have been involved in a recent string of scams, mostly targeting the elderly.
Local investigators are now working with agencies from multiple states. They believe the O'Hara brothers were part of a group called the Irish Travelers, known to pose as utility workers to enter a home and then steal from their victims.
London Police believe more victims will come forward.
