Reports of Yard Work Fraud

In recent weeks, a man has gone door to door within Franklin Trace asking to do mulching and yard work.  At least one resident decided to give him a chance, gave him a down payment, and he subsequently never showed up and would not return calls.
A report has been filed with IMPD.  Many other cases have been linked to this same person in the Geist area and he has been arrested and is facing court. The detective working the case has asked to see if other individuals in Franklin Trace have been a victim as well. If so, please call Officer Randy Nave at (317) 327-3662.

    I strongly suggest, if they haven’t already done so, to contact their bank and have a hold on any unwanted activity on their checking account. I suggest their account be tagged with Photo ID required. Yes some banks have that in place but seldom use it.
