Suspected scammers could be trying to unload overpriced machinery in Middle Georgia.
Monroe County Sheriff John Cary Bittick is urging the public to beware a gray 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 truck with a raised wooden bed and Continental Logistics written on the side.
Monday, Monroe deputies stopped the vehicle with Ohio license plates and found Tahoe generators, a pressure washer, an air compressor and other equipment in the back.
The driver said he was delivering the products to a local company, but the deal fell through and he wanted to sell the $17,000 worth of equipment for $6,000, according to a public service announcement from the Monroe County Sheriffs Office.
Monroe investigators told the driver and his alleged supervisor that they needed a peddlers permit from the probate court, but did not charge them with a crime.
The investigators later discovered several Internet postings related to schemes involving the sale of overpriced Tahoe brand items, supposedly being sold at a discount due to a canceled order.
If anyone has information about the company, call the Monroe County Sheriffs Office at (478) 994-7043.
