Gwinnett County police are searching for a Flowery Branch man wanted for stealing thousands of dollars by posing as a legitimate tree cutting and removal company.
According to the arrest warrant, Andrew Mosley, 22, used several fake business names to scam people looking to trim or cut their trees. Police say after receiving partial or full payment, Mosley would not do the work as promised or he would only do half of the tree cutting and removal job.
Gwinnett County police detectives started investigating Mosley in December 2016. They believe Mosley was paid nearly $9,000 in the tree cutting scam by 14 different people, many of whom are in their 70s and 80s. He's wanted for 13 counts of misdemeanor theft by conversion and one count of felony theft by conversion.
According to police, some of the false names he rotated when advertising his tree cutting service include B&M Tree Services, Mosley Tree Service and United Tree Service.
Anyone with information on the suspect's whereabouts is asked to contact the Gwinnett County Police Department at 770-513-5300. Crime Stoppers Atlanta is offering a $2,000 reward for any information that could lead to an arrest.
