Alleged driveway resealers asked to leave

Although they had no valid driver’s licenses and had warrants for their arrests out of Tennessee, Wisconsin and Alabama, they’ll be more than happy to reseal your driveway for you.

For a price, of course.

Fort Wayne police were called to the 5100 block of Covington Road on Sunday as two men in a red pickup truck were going door to door asking if homeowners wanted their driveways resealed.

The men did nothing wrong and were not arrested but told an officer they were staying at a local motel and were in need of money.

When the officer ran their names through police records, he found they had several warrants in other states for their arrest, but the warrants were apparently ones that were “non-extraditable,” according to a police report.

Neither man had a valid driver’s license, so the officer allowed them to call someone with a valid license to take them on their way.
