[ARCHIVED] Man Sentenced for Targeting Elderly in Home-Improvement Scam

William Lazrovitch

An East Earl man was recently sentenced in Lancaster County Court for running home-improvement scams, along with his brother, in multiple jurisdictions.

William Lazrovitch targeted older residents in the 2014 and 2015 scams, in which he and brother, Peter, offered services, were paid, but never performed the work.

The Lazrovitches posed as licensed contractors, using the fraudulent moniker All County Asphalt & Masonry in some of the incidents.

On Monday, William Lazrovitch, 44, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor counts of theft by deception and home improvement fraud, in exchange for a 5-year probation term.

Lazrovitch’s payment of $1,960 in owed restitution factored into the plea agreement, according to Assistant District Attorney Julie Slabinski, lead prosecutor.

Lazrovitch admitted to incidents in East Lampeter and Ephrata, where he offered tree-removal and driveway-repair services.

Lancaster County Judge Howard Knisely accepted the plea agreement and ordered sentence. As part of sentence, Lazrovitch is banned from performing home-improvement or landscaping services.

Cases against Peter Lazrovitch are pending, according to Slabinski. He is presumed innocent.

East Lampeter police Detective Christopher Jones and Ephrata police Detective David Shupp filed charges.
