A local roofer has pled guilty in a scam involving victims in Arlington, Mansfield and North Richland Hills, the Tarrant County Distract Attorney’s office announced Jan. 25.

Patrick Jenkins, 30, has pled guilty to Theft of $150,000 – 300.000 for scamming victims in Arlington, Mansfield and North Richland Hills through his roofing company, SOS Roofing and Construction.

Prosecutors and police compiled the cases of 41 victims who contracted with Jenkins’ company to have roofing repairs done, only to have no work completed. Jenkins would send employees door-to-door signing up prospective customers and taking checks for initial payments, promising work would begin in a week, but only providing excuses when the complaints began.

As part of the plea agreement, Jenkins must also pay $230,000 in restitution.

“This case was a great example of teamwork between our office and the Arlington Police Department,” said prosecutor Matt Smid, Chief of the Criminal District Attorney’s White Collar Crime Team. “We have made it a priority to put white collar criminals on notice in Tarrant County – we will not tolerate scammers preying on our residents.”

Jenkins entered his plea in Criminal District Court No. 2, presided over by Judge Wayne Salvant.
