An ongoing investigation into the Serv-All Oil Delivery Company of Dover has resulted in criminal charges against two corporations and the arrest of one of the company drivers, according to the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office.
The investigation began in February after the Sheriff’s Office said it had received complaints of possible fraud involving the company’s oil deliveries. Additional victims were identified as the investigation reportedly showed that the company was intentionally “shorting” customers, delivering less fuel than indicated on the delivery tickets and billing for the full amount, the Sheriff’s Office said.
According to the Sheriff’s Office media release, the scam involved the use of pre-printed delivery tickets.
A delivery truck driver, Danny Djonovic, 28, of Pawling, N.Y., was arrested on April 4 and charged with 25 counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument in the second degree, a class D felony. He was arraigned in the Town of Dover Court and released on $5,000 cash bail.
The two companies, Serv-All Oil Delivery and Serv-All Fuel Delivery, were charged with one count each of a scheme to defraud in the first degree, a class E felony.
The Sheriff’s Office’s investigation is ongoing. If you think you may have been a victim or know someone else who may be a victim, the Sheriff’s Office asks that you call 845-486-3807 and ask for Detective Cuddeback.
