Lee County Sherriff's Department Arrest Unlicensed Contractors

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office, with the support of the Lee BIA, are very pleased to report 68 arrests for unlicensed contractor activity in the five county area of Southwest Florida, the highest in the state. The support of Lee BIA Emeritus Board Member and Staff Officer, Darryl Aubuchon, with the Lee County Sheriff’s, Office was instrumental in this effort. Officer Aubuchon, along with the BIA, were recognized by the State for their efforts on a sting operation conducted last fall. “Unlicensed contracting is not a victimless crime, the safety of the consumer is at risk when unlicensed work is done by unscrupulous contractors.  Many of these consumers are not familiar with our building code requirements in Florida and are taken in by these characters.”–Darryl Aubuchon, Staff Officer LCSO (and Lee BIA Board Member)
