Brooklyn contractor charged with grand larceny

On Thursday afternoon, January 19, 2017, Delaware County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested 50 year old Marc D. Trautrimas of Brooklyn, New York, upon his voluntary surrender to the Sheriff’s Office on an arrest warrant issued by Colchester Town Court for Grand Larceny in the Third Degree. Deputies say the arrest stems from their investigation of a contractor fraud complaint filed by a Town of Colchester homeowner in October, 2016. The home owner reported paying Trautrimas more than $3,000 during the fall of 2015 as a down payment pursuant to an agreement with Trautrimas who failed to commence that project or refund the homeowner’s money more than a year later.

The defendant was later arraigned in front of Judge Edel at Colchester Town Court and was released on his own recognizance.
