LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The owner of an air conditioning company is under arrest, accused of operating a telemarketing room, without a license. This is all connected to a larger case the WINK News Call For Action team has been tracking for more than a year.
The Florida Department of Agriculture confirmed that the owner of Air Experts was arrested for making telemarketing calls, without having a license. Antonio Miralles is the owner of the company.
Telemarketing without a license in florida is considered a third degree felony.
The Department of Agriculture also said the business was fined $8,000.
It appears Miralles has a connection to a man we've been investigating for more than a year: Salvatore Tavolacci, the CFO of Service Star, another AC company recently in trouble with the law.
