On Thursday, the New York State Police arrested Cody A. Madonia, age 26, of Rome, NY following a multi-agency investigation into numerous complaints throughout the United States where the defendant failed to provide purchased equipment to the victims from his business 'Proforce Excavation and Equipment' located at Turin Road in the City of Rome.

Madonia is alleged to have failed to provide these pieces of equipment upon receiving payment of over $90,000 from the victims. These complaints were received following Madonia’s previous arrest for a Grand Larceny in the third degree on January 15, 2018, where Madonia was arrested in regards to an internet (eBay) sale of a Bobcat skid-steer from his business and failed to provide the Bobcat upon payment of $17,500.

Madonia is currently been charged with Grand Larceny 2nd degree (C- felony), Scheme to Defraud 1st degree and Falsify Business Records 1st degree, both of which are a class “E" Felony. Madonia is being held at the Oneida County Jail for centralized arraignment.

The New York State Police were assisted in this investigation by the Pennsylvania State Police, Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department in Indiana, and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department in Tennessee.
