18. On July 7, Curylo asked Mayor Ken Cockayne for directions and said he was doing some work on a nearby home, the mayor said Monday. He must not have known who I was, Cockayne said. Knowing Curylo was being investigated by police, Cockayne gave him directions and called the police, telling them where Curylo would be: a house on Geary Avenue. Police went to the address, arrested Curylo and charged him with second-degree larceny, offering home repair without a license, no notice of cancellation, failure to provide notice of cancellation rights and failure to provide oral cancellation rights. The homeowner, police said, was 93 years old. Curylo pleaded not guilty to all charges. He has a lengthy criminal history that includes charges of larceny and conspiracy to commit larceny. In March, his home improvement license was revoked, and he was ordered to pay about $30,000 to five former customers and $5,750 in civil penalties, according to a release from the Department of Consumer Protection. http://m.bristolpress.com/articles/2014/08/12/news/doc53e9828bf308a073703802.txt
