The attorney general’s lawsuit lists a Greenville address for Greene.
“Our investigators went to that address and were unsuccessful in locating the defendant. At that time, the information was also given to the Darke County Sheriff’s Office,” said Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office spokesman Greg Flannagan.
Darke County Sheriff’s Office officials say they checked the Greenville address several times and have not located Greene.
The lawsuit filed Thursday in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court alleges Greene violated the Consumer Sales Practices Act and the Home Solicitation Sales Act.
Greene’s business was registered at a home address in Dayton, where Yost said his office contacted him several times to try to resolve the complaints. Greene did not respond to the complaints, the release stated.
As part of the lawsuit, Yost is seeking an injunction to prohibit Greene and his business from operating.
The attorney general’s office filed a separate lawsuit last year against Brandon Valandingham, whose business Buckeye Storm Solutions was accused of taking money for tornado repairs and not doing the work. Trial in that case is schedule for April. Valandingham was sentenced to three years in prison in October after pleading no contest to theft charges.
