There are new developments tonight in a story we have been following out of Somerset County.  Police have filed four more charges against a Somerset County contractor accused of taking money up front for projects and not completing the work.  The police say at least four more victims have come forward alleging that Jonathan Swank of Berlin and his company, Edge Construction, took more than fifty thousand dollars from them last year.  That money paid upfront for materials and labor on projects that have not been finished.  Now that is in addition to six other cases throughout the county we have been following.  The police say in all Swank is accused of taking more than one hundred and sixty thousand dollars from clients.  So far, Swank has only been arraigned on the original five cases but police say they will be filing warrants and expect further arraignments to take place next week.
