Officers say Sherman Denny, 54, is wanted for theft by deception.
A woman told police that Denny approached her in a parking lot using a familiar story for many of his victims. He said he was from out of town and forgot his diabetes medication. When Denny received the victim’s money, he gave her a false address and phone number.
Since WKYT first reported on Denny’s reported tactics in July 2018, many contacted us to share their encounters with him. He is also known to ask to borrow a cellphone to call family before asking for gas money.
