New Port Richey landscaper cashed the checks without doing the work, deputies say

HUDSON

A man accused of preying on the elderly – promising to do odd jobs and landscaping, and cashing their checks without doing the work – was arrested Tuesday, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Ronald W. Chomic, 43, who lives at 3625 Connon Drive in New Port Richey, is accused of doing things like accepting money to install grass plugs and then never doing it, or taking money with a promise of doing upkeep work every few months and never coming back. Three sets of victims in Chomic's arrest report accused him of taking more than $4,000 of their money. The report also states his company – Ron/Don Yard Work – has no license. Chomic faces several charges of grand theft and charges of failing to appear in court for a previous arrest. He is being held without bail in the Land O'Lakes jail.
