CINCINNATI, Ohio — A roofing contractor has been indicted after being accused of taking money from homeowners but not completing the work.
According to a release from Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost, an investigation into Aspen Roofing & Siding LLC has resulted in an indictment and lawsuit against the Cincinnati home improvement contractor. Randy Jones Jr., owner of Aspen Roofing & Siding, is accused of taking money from homeowners after having them sign contracts but failing to show up and do the work. In other instances, Jones Jr. allegedly showed up and started the work but did it in a shoddy and substandard manner.
“Hammering out a rap sheet is really the only notable work this grifter has done,” Yost said. “He had plenty of opportunities to make this right and now it’s payback time.”
The civil lawsuit filed in the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas seeks to recover nearly $60,000 in losses for homeowners victimized by Jones Jr.
Jones Jr. was also indicted in April on eight counts of felony theft in Hamilton County after an investigation by Yost’s Economic Crimes Unit. That unit is also prosecuting the case.
