PLAINS TWP. — Wyoming Homes owner David Valenti was charged with swindling more customers.
Luzerne County detectives and township police on Thursday filed six criminal complaints against Valenti, 61, charging him with theft.
The latest charges add to a growing list of complaints from customers about Valenti and his alleged business practices.
Valenti, of Glenmaura Drive, Moosic, is already facing several theft cases in Luzerne County Court, including a few theft cases in Susquehanna County, according to court records.
The state Office of Attorney General in July filed a civil suit in Luzerne County Court alleging violations of the Consumer Protection Law after receiving 20 complaints from customers about shoddy work from August 2011 through December 2013. The AG is seeking a court order to permanently shut down Valenti’s business.
Valenti is accused of receiving down payments from customers and failing to deliver newly constructed module homes or failing to complete construction.
Valenti is scheduled to surrender Thursday afternoon at the office of District Judge Diana Malast on the latest criminal complaints filed against him.
