A scam artist involved in a group wanted by the F-B-I has agreed to give himself up to Story County officials. Story County Attorney Stephen Holmes says Bartley Gorman was part of a group that preyed on the elderly by promising to do blacktopping work and then taking off with the money.Gorman will pay eight-thousand dollars in restitution to Story county residents and five-thousand dollars in fines. Holmes says Gorman had been in custody, but skipped out on his bond. He says they were able to make a deal with the bond agent to get Gorman to turn himself in.Holmes says this is the best way to put the case to rest.Holmes says unfortunately the money recovered is only a small portion of the amount lost in the scams. He says it’s another example of why you should always be sure you’re hiring a reputable company to do any contract work.
