Carlos Barajas, 31, of RB Remodeling, was taken into custody in Ramona on April 9 on suspicion of check fraud and burglary charges, according to reports.

The investigation surrounding Barajas began in March when a Vista woman reported a crime about her checks being fraudulently cashed and a missing ring, said the sheriff’s department. The victim told deputies that RB Remodeling had made water damage repairs in her home in February, authorities said.

Anyone who has filed a crime report and has had remodeling work done by Barajas or RB Remodeling is asked to contact Detective Byron Barrios at 760-940-4600.
