SALISBURY, Md.- Detectives with the Wicomico Bureau of Investigations say a man who has been doing home improvements without a license has been targeting elderly customers, overcharging them and not finishing the work he was hired to complete. In several cases, according to police, he is accused of stealing jewelry and checks.

The WBI is investigating 41-year-old David M. Suire of Salisbury. Detectives said Suire has been doing home improvements throughout the county without a Maryland Home Improvement Commission license.

Detectives said that in several cases while working inside a victim's home, Suire stole jewelry and checks. Suire then allegedly forged and cashed these checks at several local banks, according to police.

Suire was arrested late last week and charged with three counts of theft: value $1,000 or less, and one count of conspiracy to commit theft: value $1,000 or less. He is being held in the Wicomico County Detention Center in lieu of $35,000 bond. 

Detectives said Suire was accompanied by his girlfriend, 25-year-old Stacey L. Scott, also of Salisbury, who was also allegedly involved in the thefts and subsequently arrested for conspiracy and related offenses. She was released on $2,500 bond.

Detectives said that as of this time, the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office has been contacted by six individuals in Wicomico County who had hired Suire to do work on their homes.

Anyone who has hired Suire for home improvements is asked to contact the WBI at (410) 548-4898.
