Two men claiming to be brothers tried to swindle a woman into a repaving her driveway for $150.

According to a Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) press release, one of the men asked if the homeowner had some pain reliever. The woman said she told the men to wait in the living room, but when she tried to return from getting the medication, realized she had been cornered in the bathroom.

The woman told deputies she said, “I told you to stay in the living room” repeatedly until her two sons came out of their rooms. When they did, the two subjects went back through the living room and left.

The woman said the men took bottles of Xanax, Percocet and allergy medication while in the home. Deputies reported that neighbors said they had encountered the same two men.
