A Bend contractor has been indicted on stealing more than $1.5 million in “the largest fraud case in Deschutes County history, according to the county’s district attorney.

Eric Robert “Gabe” Wisehart was arraigned this morning on allegations of stealing property from homeowners, according to a statement from the state Department of Justice.

The indictment says Wisehart, who did business as New Path Renewables, PacWind-Or and Solect Systems, Inc., returned to job sites of former employers and stole solar panels and other renewable energy equipment.

“This is the largest fraud case in Deschutes County history and it represents how local law enforcement and the attorney general can work together to crack down on consumer fraud,” said District Attorney Michael Dugan.
