NORWALK, Conn. — A 21-year-old Norwalk man faces larceny charges after he obtained checks from elderly victims who paid him for two separate home repairs that he failed to complete, Norwalk police said Thursday.

A bank fraud investigator tipped off police about the the financial exploitation of an elderly victim on March 15, police said.

Following an investigation, police determined that Angelo Bimbo went to a victim’s house looking for work and agreed to do repairs, which he never made. He was able to obtain $24,750 in checks from the victim, police said.

Police identified Bimbo by his Florida license, which he used to cash the checks, police said.

On May 12, a second elderly Norwalk resident contacted the Norwalk police department to report that Bimbo had also charged him for repairs he did not finish, police said.

The victim alleged that Bimbo approached the victim in the victim’s driveway on May 2. He stated that the victim’s roof had a “bubble” and that the driveway needed repairs, police said.

Bimbo obtained two checks totaling $7,000 to purchase supplies. But Bimbo did not return to begin the work until May 12. The victim called police at that time, but Bimbo fled the scene prior to police arrival, police said.

He left a half-sealed driveway and abandoned a day laborer on the roof of the victim’s home, police said.

Bimbo was arrested on Wednesday and charged with first-degree larceny and second-degree larceny. His bond was set at $31,650 with a court date of July 27, police said.
