Police seek victims of duo scamming on window installations

Irene Sofi, Rene Lezcano arrested, charged with grand theft, contracting without license


MIAMI – Police are asking anyone to come forward who may have been victims of a window install-scamming duo.

Police said Irene Sofi and Rene Lezcano entered into a contract with Benjamin Solomon under Florida Installs LLC to supply and install impact windows for his home on April 1.

After Solomon put a deposit down with the duo for $21,600, Sofi and Lezcano never returned to supply materials or work, according to police.

Further investigations also found that Florida Installs LLC was not a licensed business within the county or state.

Both suspects were arrested and charged, but police said they believe there could be more victims.

Anyone with any information on the duo is asked to contact the Miami Police Department's Burglary Unit.
