A man charged with home repair fraud against two Orland Park homeowners last year has been sentenced to six years in prison, Orland Park police said Thursdat in a release.
Ricky Ziko, of Berwyn, stirred together sand and water and fibbed to homeowners that it was a sealant to repair cracks in concrete, police said. One elderly homeowner caught onto the scam, handed over a small amount of money to send him away and then sent police hunting for Ziko's car.
Ziko was arrested in Hickory Hills and admitted to the fraud, police said.
Ziko pleaded guilty May 20 to the charges.
