SANDY CONTRACTOR JAILED ON THEFT CHARGES

Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato today announced the arrest yesterday (6/29) of Francis E. Scullion, 58, of Somerdale, NJ, for the charge of third (3rd) degree Theft.

The arrest stems from the 2-5-15 indictment of Scullion.  The indictment alleges Scullion 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.

The case was investigated by Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Det. James Conroy.  Supervising Assistant Prosecutor Martin Anton will be handling the prosecution for the state.

The media and public are reminded that criminal charges are merely accusations and that the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
