Ripping off an 85-year-old widow over an air conditioning unit. Sarasota County detectives have arrested a man they say not only operated an illegal contractor business but stole money from a would-be client. Forty-six-year-old Robert Grannan of Englewood allegedly provided the woman with a written estimate for a new a/c unit and said he needed an advance payment of over 26-hundred dollars for the work. She paid, he disappeared, and detectives took over. Grannan now charged with Grand Theft From A Person 65 And Older.
