One man charged in a multi-county home building scam has pleaded guilty in the case that resulted in approximately 32 homeowners losing a total of $419,477.
The victims, of Boone, Hamilton, Hendricks and Marion counties, were allegedly overcharged by BiltRite Homes LLC owners Gary Ogle, 69, and Robert Fersch, 68, both of Indianapolis.
In 2016, when charges were initially filed, Boone County Prosecutor Todd Meyer said the pair ran “essentially a Ponzi scheme” on approximately 12 homeowners and eight homes constructed by BiltRite in Boone County.
