DYER | The Lake County Sheriff's Department is searching for a man who tried Tuesday to charge a senior citizen $160 to sweep his leaves.

A resident of the 14500 block of 81st Avenue near Dyer told deputies that a man knocked on his door and told him that he needed $160 to sweep leaves from the property, said Patti Van Til, spokeswoman for the Sheriff's Department. The man entered the home without permission from the resident.

The unidentified man left after the elderly homeowner told him he was going to call his daughter, Van Til said. The homeowner was not injured and did not report anything stolen.

The suspect is described as a white man in his late 30s who was wearing a yellow sweatshirt and jeans. The man was described as stocky with blond hair.
