The man accused of scamming elderly homeowners in Bristol appeared in court on Monday.
Brian Curylo, of Hot Top Paving, was arraigned in Bristol Superior Court on charges of larceny, violating a home improvement contract, and other offenses.
Curylo was arrested earlier this month while trying to do work without a license on Geary Avenue in Bristol, according to police. The arrest came weeks after police issued a warning to residents about Curylo. He is accused of going door to door targeting elderly people, taking money for work he never does, according to Bristol police.
After his court appearance, Curylo did not comment on the charges.
Court records show Curylo has a lengthy record with prior convictions for larceny, breach of peace, and other crimes.
The Department of Consumer Protection said Curylo has scammed people out of tens of thousands of dollars.
He is out on a $5,000 bond and is due back in court August 11.
