Tree Trimmer Scam Artist Identified by Anderson Co. Sheriff’s Office

February 28, 2013

Jimmy Gerard Sherlock

The tree trimmer scam artist that victimized two Elbert County residents may have finally been identified.

The scammer has also apparently been hard at work in neighboring counties including Hart and Royston, as well as Anderson County in South Carolina.

49-year-old Jimmy Gerard Sherlock is believed to have been involved with up to three cases in Anderson County; all of which fit the same pattern of luring people out of their homes while someone else went inside the home to steal valuables.

If anyone has any information about Sherlock’s whereabouts they can contact the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office at (864) 260-4400, or the Elbert County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 283-2421.
