Suspect Sought in String of Scams
Thursday, January 30, 2014

Lancaster, SC – The Lancaster County Sheriff’s is currently searching for Harvey Paul Laney (W/M DOB:02/11/1970 Last Known Address: 2446 Doc Holiday Circle Lancaster). Laney has been charged with 3 counts of Breach of Trust over $2,000 and additional cases are being investigated. The investigation has revealed that Laney markets himself as the owner of Carolina Roofing which is listed in the yellow pages. Over the last month Laney has on at least 3 occasions been contacted by a prospective client and asked to provide a quote to do home repairs or improvements. After providing a quote and agreeing on the price, Laney was then paid a percentage of the cost upfront by the victim. Laney then intentionally failed to return to do the work and has not been heard from since.

The Sheriff’s Office currently has active warrants on Laney and is asking anyone with information about Laney’s whereabouts to call the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office at 283-4136 or contact Crimestopper’s at 1-888-Crime SC (1-888-274-6372) or you can e-mail or text your anonymous tip to: www.midlandscrimestoppers.com
