Preston Wade Greenlee is wanted on a warrant for Scheme to Defraud and Theft from a person 65 years or old. Greenlee uses the alias Wade Garrett. Greenlee 's method of operation is to approach senior citizens while they are out in their yards and ask if they area interested in having their driveway painted, sealed or otherwise repaired. He may or may not be accompanied by another person. When the victim agrees to the terms of his proposal he writes it up on a generic proposal form and collects what he calls a deposit. Usually a few days later he returns to the home owner and requests a second check to pay for materials to do the job. In most cases he never returns to do the job. Greenlee has used the same scheme in Sumter and Marion Counties also.
