Grand jury indicts Middletown man on home improvement fraud charges

A New Castle County Grand Jury returned a 34-count indictment against a Middletown man who operated a home improvement business.

Mario Mareno, 50, faces one count of Racketeering, one count of Crime Against a Vulnerable Adult, 17 counts of Theft, and 15 counts of Home Improvement Fraud.

The First State Fugitive Task Force arrested Mareno in May 2016 on four outstanding warrants for Home Improvement Fraud from the Delaware State Police, the New Castle County Police, and the Middletown Police Department.

The new indictment consolidated charges against Mareno from Kent and Sussex counties into a single case in New Castle County, and added the Racketeering charge. Mareno posted bail, and was arrested on a fugitive warrant in North Carolina last September. Mareno is now being held at the Howard Young Correctional Institution
