FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – Investigators with the Florence Police Department are looking for more information about a man who was arrested for allegedly taking money from customers and doing virtually no clean-up work after Hurricane Matthew.

According to information from Florence Police Lt. Mike Brandt, Michael Thomas Sullivan was arrested on Jan. 22 and charged with two counts of obtaining goods under false pretenses, less than $2,000, and bank fraud.

Sullivan was reportedly conducting business in the area as Sully’s Tree Service just after Matthew. He allegedly received partial or full payment for debris removal and did little to no work in return, Brandt said.

Anyone with additional information regarding the suspect is asked to contact the FPD at (843) 665-3191.
