A man faces charges of exploiting a vulnerable adult in connection with a driveway paving scam, the Richland County Sheriff’s Department announced Friday.

Willie Lee Able, 54, of Ridgeway was arrested Thursday. He had agreed to remove and replace an 84-year-old woman’s driveway at her Columbia home for $4,500, according to police reports, noting the suspect then visited the victim on seven separate occasions, obtaining more than $11,000 but never completing the job as agreed upon.

A relative alerted authorities.

If you believe you have been victimized by Able, contact the Richland County Sheriff's Department at 803-576-3000 or Midlands Crimestoppers: 1-888-crime-sc (1-888-274-6372)
