GULF SHORES, Ala. (WKRG) — A Gulf Shores home builder has been indicted on a charge of exploiting the elderly.

Investigators say Sergio Braga of Braga Design overbilled and fraudulently charged an elderly person of more than $50,000 during a renovation of a historical home.

The Gulf Shores Police Department began the fraud investigation in February 2020. The case was presented to the Baldwin County Grand Jury in January 2021, which resulted in an indictment on Sergio Braga. The grand jury charged Braga with one count of Financial Exploitation of the Elderly.

Gulf Shores police are still seeking information on subcontractors who worked for Braga Design and worked on this home located in the area of County Road 6 and County Road 4. If you have information on Braga or this investigation, contact Det. Michael Hoguet at 251-968-9841.
