On August 7, 2018, the East Earl Township Police Department charged Cornelius C. Stanley of Hudson, New Hampshire with Theft by Deception and Deceptive or Fraudulent Business Practices. It is alleged that on June 29, 2018, Stanley, doing business as "American Asphalt Paving", scammed the victim out of $6,000. Stanley and two accomplices told the victim they had left over materials from another job and would pave his driveway at a "discount." Stanley's accomplices began work even though the victim repeatedly told them to stop. Stanley told the victim he ran out of material and would need $6,000 to complete the job. Stanley received $6,000 from the victim by deception.
Stanley is currently incarcerated in Bedford County after leading State Troopers on a vehicle pursuit on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
Stanley is presumed innocent.
