Operator Of Ventura County Plumbing Service Gets 10 Year Prison Sentence For Fraud

A man prosecutors say operated a plumbing service which swindled dozens of customers in Ventura County has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Albert Solano entered guilty pleas to 30 charges ranging from elder theft to insurance fraud. Investigators say the Camarillo man targeted seniors, offering deals to unclog drains. They say once Solano was in the victims homes, he would make up other problems, and scare people into signing contracts for thousands of dollars of work.

In addition to the prison sentence, the 50 year old man has been ordered to pay full restitution to 31 victims.
