Eight men from Maine will return to Nassau County for a December court date after allegedly soliciting work without license or permit in East Meadow Wednesday afternoon.
The investigation of a potential Hurricane Sandy repair and clean up scam began around 12 p.m. Wednesday after police saw two men, who were out-of-state workers, with a confused elderly woman at a bank in the area of North Jerusalem Road.
Nassau County Police said the eight men identified soliciting work in the area were:
- Christopher R. Lau, 31
- Ian Michaud, 20
- Shawn Thyng, 22
- Thomas Thyng, 48
- Marshal Vanderbloeman, 24
- Nathan L. Jackson, 25
- Sherman L. Thyng, 69
- Mark Louis Bureau, 36
Vanderbloeman, Jackson and Bureau were issued summonses for unlicensed solicitation for paid work in the Town of Hempstead, police said.
Michaud, Shawn Thyng, Thomas Thyng and Lau were issued appearance tickets for working in Nassau County without a County Home Improvement License, police said.
All of the men were issued violation notices from the Nassau County Office of Consumer Affairs for operating a home improvement business in Nassau County without a permit, police said.
The men were released from the scene and are scheduled to appear at Second District Court in Hempstead on Dec. 27.
