Jessup, Lackawanna County --  A Lackawanna County contractor is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from his clients.
34-year-old Joseph Senese of Taylor was arrested on Tuesday.
The Lackawanna County District Attorney's Office said at least eight victims were targeted, and all of them are over the age of 60.
The total amount of theft is more than $14,000.
Ben Cardoni of Jessup said he gave Senese a $500 deposit, but he never came back to finish the job.
Cardoni was upset because Senese was charged with a similar crime last year.
Investigators said there may be other victims out there.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Lackawanna County District Attorney's Office at (570) 963-6717.
