According to sources:
"BPD tells me they served a search warrant yesterday at the company owner's home in the 11-thousand block of Brightwater. He was not taken into custody. The warrant was for an investigation into "theft of construction funds."
BAKERSFIELD - Bakersfield Police raided have the home of a local homebuilder accused by some of his clients of taking their money and running.
The Bright Water Way home of Donald Juhasz was searched Tuesday, according to Bakersfield Police.
No arrests have been made, and no charges have been filed.
Juhasz created DMJ Customs in 2005. Since then, close to a dozen people have come forward saying Juhasz took money and didn't complete work.
Here is the Original Story from the Bakersfield Californian (9/17/07):
BY VANESSA GREGORY
The fireplaces are gone. They were repossessed from the half-built structure Ammanda and Thomas Meek thought would be their dream home.
All Burt Valencia has to show for his effort to have a custom home built by DMJ Customs, a home builder, is a sign with his family name on it which stands on his empty one-acre lot at the corner of Renfro and Henderson.
Ammanda Meek's home was never completed. She says the contractor took her money, leaving her with a partially constructed home. "I hate coming here, it just kills me," she said as she walked through the partially built house.
"It was 2,600 square feet, full custom," Ammanda Meek said. "It's framed and it's got a roof. That's as far as it got."
Recall the story by the Bakersfield Californain (I cant find the link) on the DMJ Custom homes fiasco. We can now confirm the story posted by privateeye :
Finally local government is taking action with fraudsters!! BPD raided DMJ Custom Homes aka Don Juhasz home/office yesterday. No one was home at the time, however, 3 boxes were taken from his home. Hopefully IRS will be next to collect on unpaid taxes. Hope the coward shows his face soon. Maybe he could be on KGET's panel as a local rip-off artist.
