DENVER (CBS4) – A 70-count indictment has been returned by a grand jury against a man accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from property owners and subcontractors.
According to Lynn Kimbrough with the district attorney’s office, Roddy Reef, 56, has been charged with violating the Colorado Crime Control Act, 64 counts of theft, and five counts of forgery.
