SEBASTIAN, Fla. (CBS12) — A Sebastian man was arrested on a warrant for allegedly signing fraudulent checks meant for a roofing company. 

The Sebastian Police Department (SPD) said on May 23, officers found and arrested 57-year-old Ricardo Barrera on an active warrant. 

According to police, Barrera using the LLC R&M Exterior, was subcontracted by large roofing companies. Police said Barrera would allegedly sign fraudulent checks from the homeowners or insurance companies that were meant for the roofing company.

Rather than the company receiving those checks, Barrera is accused of keeping the money for himself, the SPD said.

Barrera was booked into the Indian River County jail for organized fraud, cashing or depositing items with the intent to defraud, and grand theft. He is being held on a $110,000 bond.
