Alleged Pavement Scammer Pleads Guilty

Tommy Edward Clack pleaded guilty to charges in Anne Arundel County after he overcharged residents for pavement jobs.


A man accused of throughout Anne Arundel, Prince George’s and Queen Anne’s counties pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges in Anne Arundel County, according to The Capital.

In Anne Arundel County Circuit Court, Tommy Edward Clack, 40, agreed to pay back thousands of dollars to local residents he scammed by overcharging them for pavement jobs, The Capital stated.

In January, Clack was located in Florida when local police arrested him.

Clack was accused of telling homeowners he could pave a driveway for a low price between $400 and $4,000, only to hike up the cost to $30,000 or more, authorities said. 

Anne Arundel County police released search warrants for Clack last May after they identified him as a suspect in local pavement scams. One of the scams included an Edgewater couple who claimed Clack over-charged them in April 2011 by more than $60,000—they didn't pay—to pave their driveway. Clack was also wanted in South Carolina, according to authorities.

The Capital reported that Clack duped 11 victims in Anne Arundel County and must repay them with payments ranging from $2,000 to more than $15,000.

Clack pleaded guilty to six different charges but he has to repay everyone that he scammed, all 11 of them, according to Communications Director for the
Anne Arundel County State's Attorney's Office Kristin Fleckenstein. 

Additional victims will be allowed to speak at Clack’s sentencing on May 10.
