The Hamilton Police Major Fraud Unit has arrested and charged a local man with more than two dozen offenses in connection with a variety of heating and air conditioning companies.
Police say 46-year-old Robert Spearing has owned several companies, including Blue Flame Academy, Blue Flame Group, Blue Flame Inspection Services and The Gas Company.
It’s alleged that promises were made for government and manufacturer’s rebates and that credit cards were used to make unauthorized purchases and payments for business and personal expenses.
Charges against him include fraud over 5-thousand dollars, unauthorized use of a credit card and trafficking identity information.
Police think there may be more victims out there and want to speak to anyone with information.
