Police receive multiple reports of man seeking money

Ponca City Now - July 13, 2015 10:47 am

The Ponca City Police Department confirmed Monday that several residents have contacted the department to report a man seeking money.

The story each has relayed is that the man was wearing Army fatigues and said he had returned home to find his wife cheating on him.

In some cases the residents reported giving the man money because they felt an obligation to help a military man in a bad situation.

In a couple of cases, police were able to review videotape of the man’s car, but were unable to obtain a license plate number.

Police say they have been unable to locate the man in fatigues to interview him and determine whether he truly is in need or if this is a scam preying on the generosity of residents.

If you are approached, contact police as soon as possible.
