Arrest warrant issued in New Jersey for headstone company operator
Greg Stefan Jr. wanted: Arrest warrant issued in Vineland, New Jersey for headstone company operator

VINELAND, New Jersey (WPVI) -- An arrest warrant has been issued out of Vineland, New Jersey for an operator of a local headstone company. It's a story that the Action News Troubleshooters have been warning viewers about for years.

Authorities are searching for Greg Stefan Jr. who operates a family business that sells gravestones and engravings.

He ran a collection of these businesses in Pennsylvania until Action News Troubleshooter Nydia Han brought him to the attention of the Pennsylvania Attorney General. The Attorney General subsequently shut him down for taking consumers' money and not delivering on his services.

Over the years Ms. Han has repeatedly asked Mr. Stefan to respond to our viewers complaints.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has reached a settlement with a Philadelphia-area headstone company accused of delivering its products late or not at all.

He has since opened Colonial Memorials in New Jersey, collecting thousands of dollars from consumers.

Last month, he sent a letter to his customers stating, "Colonial Memorials has for the past two years been suffering significant financial losses, and presently does not have the financial resources to fulfill your contract ..."

The consumers we talked with have not seen any refunds.
