CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – Chesterfield Police want to hear from people who may have been ripped off by a man named Jimmy Lane.

Lane, 27, is accused of offering to pave their driveways, but ended up taking their money. Lane may have identified himself to homeowners as Everett Burgess, police said.

“The investigation indicates that in October 2013, Lane agreed to repair the driveways of at least two residents. He received an initial payment of several hundred dollars from each resident, but failed to complete the work for either victim,” police wrote in an email. “On Dec. 31, police obtained warrants for construction fraud and fraudulent use of a birth certificate or driver’s license.”

Police ask that anyone who had dealing with Lane, or knows where he is right now, call 804-748-1251.
