GREENWICH, Conn. A 55-year-old Brooklyn, N.Y., man was arrested after he allegedly tried to solicit work illegally from his car on East Putnam Avenue in Greenwich.
Toby Ufie, of 497 Myrtle Ave., was parked in a lot at 90 E. Putnam Ave. when officers received information that Ufie had illegally worked on someone's car. The individual who complained said Ufie had approached him in the parking lot and offered to work on his vehicle for $200. The man said Ufie did light bonding work to the rear bumper of his car. While officers were in the parking lot, a second man told them Ufie had also approached him about working on his vehicle, but the man declined and left the area.
Ufie was charged with illegal sales without a sales tax permit, violation of sellers obligation, criminal attempt and violation of town ordinance.
He was being held on a $1,000 bond and is due in court May 21.
