The latest charges accuse Adametz of beginning plumbing work in July 2016 at a home on Suismon Street in Pittsburgh’s North Side but never finishing.

In the criminal complaint, the victim told police he gave Adametz $450 to complete the job and nearly $1,000 for permits and final inspection costs.
