BATH Twp., Ohio — Police say a Highland Hills man faces charges after allegedly trying to fraudulently receive money for snow plowing.

Bath Township police said they were called to Shell True North gas station in Bath Township just before 6 p.m. Sunday. They were told that a white male was attempting to fraudulently receive money from the clerk for snow plowing.

Reports state that the man, identified as Michael Agresta, 40, was still at the business when they arrived.

The clerk said Agresta had handed him an invoice, asking for payment for plowing the parking lot.

The clerk knew the business had a contract for snow plowing, reports state, and that he was not the contractual employee.

Agresta was then found to have two active warrants through the Solon and Lakewood police departments for the same type of activity, police reports state.

He now also faces a charge out of Bath Township for attempted theft.
