DANBURY, Conn. — A 28-year-old Danbury man who was arrested this week on multiple counts of larceny and racketeering is suspected of defrauding customers with faulty asphalt work, according to the News-Times.
Legrande Cooper turned himself in Monday at the Danbury Police Department and held on $100,000 bond after being charged with 11 counts of second-degree larceny; one count of third-degree larceny; and one count of corrupt organization/racketeering, police said.
Cooper was connected to about eight cases since 2012 in which substandard asphalt work was done, with the asphalt coming apart or the seal coating washing away, the News-Times said.
The arrest was a result of a joint investigation with the Danbury Police Department and the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection.
