RIVERSIDE COUNTY SHERIFF’S PRESS RELEASE – On Tuesday, December 10, 2013, Lake Elsinore Police Detectives arrested Reynaldo Rodriguez for multiple counts of fraud, totaling over $80,000. Rodriguez committed fraud by posing as a legitimate construction contractor and soliciting work. Once a quote was provided and monies were paid, Rodriguez either completed very little work or no work at all. Rodriguez conducted business under the name “R&R Construction” or “Ray’s Hardscapes.” Rodriguez was ultimately booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center.
The Lake Elsinore Police Detective Bureau is continuing to investigate Rodriguez and is searching for any additional victims. If you were victimized by Rodriguez, please contact Investigator McClanahan at (951) 245-3358, or by email at LakeElsinoreStation@RiversideSheriff.org.
