The Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) are seeking the public’s help in identifying six suspects in a West Island repair scam.

According to the police’s news release, six suspects have been going door-to-door offering walkway and driveway repairs on homes. When clients agree, the suspects ask to be paid in full before disappearing without doing any of the agreed work.

Authorities say the suspects range in age from 25 to 45 and speak English with strong accents claiming to be from Ireland.

According to police, the first suspect is about 40 years old and has brown hair and a beard. He was seen wearing a black and red long-sleeved shirt, an orange worker jacket, navy blue trousers, and sports shoes.
