CENTREVILLE, Md. - Tommy Clack, the Annapolis-man accused in a paving scam that spans several Maryland counties, has been hit with new criminal charges. The Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Department says they've obtained an arrest warrant for Clack, charging him with attempted theft and acting as a contractor without a license.
Clack is already facing similar charges in Howard and Anne Arundel Counties, where prosecutors say he bailed from a plea deal several weeks ago. Clack is accused of low-balling estimates for paving jobs or failing to offer an estimate. Customers say he then charged them exorbitant amounts for the work, with some paying as much as $32,000 for paving.
Two weeks ago the Maryland Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division hit Clack with a cease and desist order, which demands he stop operating as a contractor until he gets a license. The order also requires Clack to re-pay any customers who had work performed while he was unlicensed.
