Guardia Civil dig out a landscape fraudster

A RESIDENT from La Laguna, accused of fraudulence through his own landscaping business, has been arrested by La Victoria-based Guardia Civil officers.

After committing himself to carry out the clients’ work, the 41-year-old received advanced payments.

But once he had the cash, he dodged the clients, and even changed his address on several occasions to avoid them.

Another reason for his constant moves was to avoid the Guardia Civil, who were also searching for the fraudster, having received many official complaints.

They conducted a complicated investigation to find his whereabouts, because there was a search warrant out for his arrest.

In total, the fraudster scammed around 4,000 euros. But, once located, he was detained by the Guardia and presented before the judicial authorities in La Orotava.
