Police seek suspected swindler from Surfside Beach

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) Horry County Police are asking for help finding a local man suspected of swindling homeowners out of thousands of dollars.

Between November 14 and 16, HCPD offers say they took reports of 42-year-old Tony Eugene Davis of Surfside Beach accepting large amounts of money to do construction on homes, but never even starting the work.

Between July 23 and November 13 of 2016, they say Davis accepted $8,500 and $4,400 from two separate victims, and stopped all communication and “made himself hard to find.”

Two warrants are out for Davis’ arrest on Breach of Trust charges.
