Melbourne, FL (June 19, 2019) – 44-year-old Craig Favero and 43-year-old Christopher Harris were accused of stealing thousands of dollars from a disabled veteran.
The two used intimidating tactics to force the customer to pay for uncompleted work after Hurricane Irma took place. The two were arrested for exploitation of an elderly adult and grand theft.
The two men were hired in November 2017 to provide a new metal roof to the elderly person after the Hurricane came through. Harris showed up at the customer’s house one day and demanded payment but then would not accept her credit card. The two would also wait for her husband to leave the home and then show up to demand payment from her even though the work was not complete.
In total, police say that the customer paid over $35,000 for incomplete services for the debts. At this time, Favero remains held in jail while Harris has been released.
