According to information provided by the state police, David D. Valenti, 62, owner of Wyoming Homes Inc., has been charged with theft by unlawful taking or disposition.
The charge against Valenti stems from an incident that occurred on July 19, 2011.
On that date, the report continued, an unnamed Wysox man entered into a contract with Valenti
and Wyoming Homes
to have a modular home installed on his
property in Wysox.
Total purchase price of the home was $59,600, and the man provided Wyoming Homes
with a down payment of $30,000.
However, due to the section of property being zoned for commercial use only, the man was not able to have the modular home installed on the property.
As a result, the installation was canceled, and the man requested a refund of $30,000 from Wyoming Homes
, less any expenses incurred by the company.
But as of April 2015 the man has not received any portion of the $30,000 from Valenti
or Wyoming Homes
, according to the report.
Police indicated they are also charging Valenti
with receiving stolen property.
