For Immediate Release

22-April-2013


The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office issued charges on Thursday, April 18, 2013, on Steven Robert Anderson, 35 years of age, of the 2300 block of Lawrence Street, St. Louis, Missouri 63110 for one count of Unlawful Merchandise Practice (Class D Felony). The bond was set at $20,000 cash only. A photo of Anderson is attached.

The charges were issued after Anderson was arrested in April 2013 by fraud detectives of the St. Louis County Police Department’s Division of Criminal Investigation due to his fraudulent activity between August 7, 2012 and January 29, 2013. The victim in the case hired and contracted with a company run by Anderson in August 2012 to replace a roof on his house, located in the 10100 block of Baron Drive in unincorporated St. Louis County. A $3,900 check was provided by the victim as a down payment, which was deposited into a business account controlled by Anderson, however, no work was ever performed. The victim made multiple attempts to contact Anderson’s business, Griffin Roofing and Construction, in order to have the work performed or to obtain a refund, but was unable to make contact. Anderson’s business had a physical presence in Maryland Heights, Missouri at one time, but the office was closed sometime in the fall of 2012.

Anderson is alleged to be responsible for victimizing multiple people in numerous areas within Missouri and Illinois, to include many in the St. Louis region.
