Loudoun Investigators Seek Victims in Contractor Fraud Investigation

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is seeking potential additional victims as part of its investigation of contractor fraud case. 

Stephen E. Ashford, 38, was arrested Aug. 5 on charges for failure to perform promise for construction, embezzlement, and contracting without a license. He operated Pro + Design, which was previously named Pro Home Remodeling. Several victims have been identified and detectives are working to determine whether there are others.

Anyone who entered into a contract with Ashford or his companies and believes they were victims is asked to contact Detective Roy Ortutay atroy.ortutay@loudoun.govor 571-258-3375.

Ashford was released from the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on a $25,000 bond. A preliminary hearing in Loudoun County District Court is scheduled for Sept. 19.

Loudoun court records show that Ashford pleaded guilty to charges of working without a license and deceptive advertising in June 2018, receiving a 6-month suspended sentence.

    Absolutely not! He’d have been given a contract extension, increase in pay, and another year to finish the work.
