Bloomington police are asking for the public's help in locating a suspect they say has been duping residents with an advertising scam. They allege 52-year old Jeffrey Hassinger has been approaching businesses, promising ads on a placemat for a fee he collects but then doesn't develop the product. Police say they've received eight complaints from businesses over the past month. They suspect he has also been operating in Logan County as well and may have altered his appearance by losing weight and shaving his head. Police say there are warrants for larceny and other crimes against Hassinger. Anyone with information about Hassinger is asked to contact Bloomington police.
