Unlicensed Scottsdale Man Added
to AZ ROC Most Wanted List
PHOENIX, Ariz., (Oct. 24, 2019) – The Arizona Registrar of Contractors (AZ ROC) is adding Leo Andrew Wieck, 44 of Scottsdale, to the AZ ROC’s Most Wanted Unlicensed Entities List after a second felony warrant was issued for his arrest.
On October 2, 2019, the Maricopa County Superior Court issued a Grand Jury Warrant for Wieck’s arrest. Wieck DBA EMConstruction, Solscape LLC and Desert Storm Contracting LLC, faces the charge of Fraud-Illegal Use of a Credit Card, a Class 5 Felony after an AZ ROC investigation found Wieck claimed to be a licensed contractor in order to have a Phoenix homeowner pay him $10,680 for landscaping work at a Phoenix home. The homeowners allege he fraudulently withdrew $4,000 from their account without permission.
Prior to the October 2 warrant, the Maricopa County Superior Court issued another Grand Jury Warrant for Wieck’s arrest on August 20, 2019. In this case, Wieck faces the charge of Fraudulent Schemes and Artifices, a Class 2 Felony and the charge stems from an AZ ROC investigation that found Wieck represented himself as a licensed contractor so a Phoenix homeowner would pay him $30,000 for a new pool installation. Wieck started the project but disappeared before it was complete.
Wieck is also wanted on a Failure to Appear Warrant issued by the Encanto Justice Court on July 19, 2019. In that case, Wieck is being charged with Contracting Without a License, a Class 1 Misdemeanor after an AZ ROC investigation found a Phoenix homeowner paid him $53,539 for a pool installation. Following concerns with the workmanship, the victim discovered Wieck was not licensed to perform the work and filed a complaint.
