Palm Beach County Resident Charged With Grand Theft

2/6/2009
 
Today, William Rolland Baugh, 50, turned himself in to the Palm Beach County Jail pursuant to a warrant for his arrest for grand theft, a first-degree felony.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) began investigating Baugh in November 2006 after receiving information from EnviroCap, LLC, a Tampa-based company, about fraudulent claims in excess of $800,000 they received from Custom Solutions International, Inc. (CIS), a consulting firm, owned by Baugh.

EnviroCap is responsible for providing financing to environmental remediation companies for clean-up on petroleum contaminated sites. Baugh, who was once the president and personal guarantor of Custom Solutions International, Inc., allegedly presented EnviroCap with invoices for work that was incomplete or had never been performed. The criminal activity allegedly occurred from 1999 through April 2004. EnviroCap initiated legal actions against CIS in September 2004.

Baugh is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail on a $15,000 bond.
