Police have arrested a 46-year-old woman they say was involved in a series of scams in Weber County, but her male accomplice remains at large.
The two are suspected of operating an illegal roofing company, bilking homeowners of money for nonexistent or unfinished re-roofing work, according to a release from the Weber County Sheriff's Office.
In five reported cases, the man quoted a low price for the job before requesting money in advance to cover the cost of materials, the sheriff's office said.
Sometimes, the man took the money and never returned. In other cases, the man and his crew actually started the work but asked for more money to complete the job. When the homeowner refused to pay, the man disappeared, leaving the roof torn up and unfinished, the sheriff's office said.
