Man Arrested for Construction Scam

MIDLAND - A Midland man is in jail for running a construction scam.

54-year-old Alfredo Cantu has been charged with theft. Police say Cantu would bid on construction jobs, get money upfront and then disappear.

We're told he started some of the jobs, but never planned on finshing them. Investigators believe Cantu targeted the elderly and that there are more victims that may not realize it.

If you think you've been scammed call Midland Police.
