Contractor Charged with Theft After Bayville Repair Fraud

Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato today announced the arrest yesterday of Francis E. Scullion, 58, of Somerdale, for the charge of third degree theft.

The arrest stems from the February 5, 2015 indictment of Scullion that alleges he was contracted to make renovations to a Bayville home within Berkeley Township after Superstorm Sandy.

He allegedly took in excess of $15,000 from the homeowner from June 2012 to July 2012 and never completed the contracted work.

The indictment alleges he instead used the monies for his daily living expenses.
