LEBANON, Pa. (WHTM) -

A woman who helped an elderly Lebanon man by mowing his lawn is wanted for helping herself to his money.

The man told officers he was cutting his grass in the 100 block of S. 4th Avenue on Friday morning when the woman approached him and offered to do the work for him, city police said.

He said he sat on his front porch while the woman mowed, and after she left he discovered about $100 in cash was missing from a wallet in his bedroom, according to police.

The man believes someone entered his house through a rear door while he was on his porch.

He described the woman as about 5'7" tall with blonde hair, and he believes she may have been going door-to-door before she approached him, police said. He did not see anyone with the woman.

Anyone with information may call Lebanon police at 717-272-6611.
