News headline from the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office:

2012-03-27-lozano-wanted-poster-lozano.jpgA suspect is in custody in connection with elder abuse and theft, and the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office is requesting any additional victims to come forward.

Arturo Carrillo Lozano (pictured right), 50, and doing business as A Touch of Class Paint & Flooring, was arrested and is being investigated after allegations of elder abuse and theft.

He is described as a Hispanic man, 5’11” tall, weighing 230 pounds, with brown eyes, and black & gray hair.  He was known to drive a white 2008 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck.

Lozano is accused of preying on the elderly by offering to assist them with odd jobs, often times construction-type jobs, around their homes in exchange for money.  Once Lozano receives payment, the jobs are usually substandard, not completed, or in some cases, not even started.

Lozano is currently in custody.

The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office believes that Lozano has worked in various locations throughout the San Bernardino, Riverside and Los Angeles County areas, and they believe that there are additional victims that have yet to come forward or be identified.

If you believe that you have been victimized by Arturo Lozano, or know someone that was victimized by him, please contact Senior Investigator Steve Rivera at 909-891-3530.
