MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis Police Department said it is not looking into reports of a group of thieves stealing money from a Memphis woman.

A Facebook post from Shelby County Sheriff's Office said MPD was trying to find at least two door-to-door linoleum salesmen who stole money from a woman who let them into her home. 

Despite SCSO's post, MPD said the men pictured are not suspects nor are they responsible for the thefts.

MPD officers said the woman did report money being missing from her home and she told officers some linoleum salesmen were the only people to come by her house recently. However, MPD does not believe the men are suspects.
