The East Cocalico Township Police Department is looking for the whereabouts of George A Braun; II, age 35, in regards to a Home Improvement Scam committed at a residence in the first block of Martzall Road in East Cocalico Township. It is alleged that on November 12, 2018, Braun solicited roofing business from an 87 year old victim. Braun originally quoted a price of $425.00 but, after approximately 1 1/2 hours of work, charged the victim $4425. Braun attempted to cash a check for the above amount on November 13, but bank employees became suspicious, contacted the victim, and refused to cash said check. A local construction company confirmed that the victim did not receive $4000 of roofing work.
It is believed that Braun had been living in the southern part of Lancaster County, possibly in Kinzers, PA. He has ties to Arizona where there are also warrants for his arrest. Anyone with any information is urged to contact Sgt. Christopher Progin or the East Cocalico Township Police Department at 717 336-1725.
