TAZEWELL - Authorities in Virginia need your help locating a man they say is targeting the elderly.

Timothy Dillow of North Tazewell is wanted for a felony charge of obtaining money by false pretenses. 

Deputies with the Tazewell County Sheriff's Office said Dillow scams people in two ways: He'll claim his car broke down and ask for money, or he'll demand money from a victim he claims to have done work for. 

Dillow has not been violent toward any victims, but authorities told WOAY he is a larger man who can appear demanding and intimidating. 

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office.
