Police warn area residents about alleged scammer posing as a soldier

DUBLIN—Police are warning area residents to be aware of a person they have labeled a well-traveled conman who was seen in their town.
The department posted an alert on their Facebook page earlier this week, saying "James Schuder, was escorted out of town this weekend after being located walking along Route 101 dressed in a military style uniform with an empty gas can. He is a known scam artist."
Schuder has been arrested and fined for scamming good Samaritans out of money in different states over the course of several years while he posed as a returning combat veteran or other military servicemember. Schuder allegedly dresses and plays the part of a soldier looking for money to cover travel expenses.
Police are asking people to call police if he is seen in the area.
