Local man accused in Ohio con game

September 8, 2006

Tommy Joseph Riley, an Irish Traveler, was arrested in Geauga County, Ohio.

Police say Riley targets mainly Amish folks in his scam and that he was trying to cash a check he obtained fraudulently.

Investigators say Riley arrives at a home, advises the wife that her husband bought tools from him, and says that she should write him a check.

The Geauga County Sheriff's Department is investigating several incidents said to involve Riley.
