Between 2014 and 2017, Nevius entered into contracts with at least 17 homeowners and two sub-contractors for repairs on their homes, Billhimer said.

The Ocean County Prosecutor’s Economic Crimes Unit was assisted in its investigation by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Ocean County Department of Consumer Affairs and the Stafford Township, Ship Bottom, Long Beach Township and Surf City police departments.
