Police make an arrest after a property owner finds his chain link fence sold for scrap.

A Salina woman is scammed over the phone.

Police are investigating after a 78-year-old female is bilked out of over $400 after a phone call.

According to Lt. Scott Siemsen, a male claiming to be with Medicare called the woman in mid-September and told her he needed to update some of her information because of some changes that were being made.

Police say he obtained some bank account information including the last four digits of her checking account number.

The woman contacted police on Tuesday after someone withdrew $448 from her checking account on October 23rd.

A second attempt to withdraw more cash the next day was blocked by her bank.
