PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Two men posed as fire inspectors and asked for a cash payment at Portland area businesses recently.

The men were captured on surveillance video from Imelda’s Shoes and Louie’s Shoes for Men on SE Hawthorne.

Portland police said the men asked to check the fire extinguisher tags and then asked for cash. The owners did not pay.
