The East Moline Police Department is looking for help to apprehend suspected scam artists. The department issued a warning in August concerning a business going by the name of Above the Rest Tree Service.

After an investigation, police say they have obtained arrest warrants regarding an August 13, 2012, offense of home repair fraud. Warrants have been issued for 51-year-old Scott M. Miller and 30-year-old Patrick R. Miller, both of Lincoln, Neb., for Aggravated Home Repair Fraud. Police say they entered into an agreement with the victim under "false pretense or false promises."

Investigators say that information gathered in their investigation leads them to believe the suspects have left the Quad City area. But, they say the warrants are extraditable nationwide and the East Moline Police Department is working with other agencies to apprehend these suspects.
