Oakland police are asking for your help finding a scam artist, who targets the elderly. Investigators say 70-year-old Carl Talton has approached most of his victims at the 'Pac n Save' on Hegenberger Road and the Home Depot on Alameda Avenue. He convinces them to donate money to a charity and then pockets the donation. Talton is 5'9 tall, and weighs about 200 pounds. Police say he's stolen about $40,000.
