Police in one Eastern Carolina town said there have been more charges brought against the owner of an auto repair shop for elder exploitation.

Roanoke Rapids, NC, police said Vivian Pompliano is facing three more counts of exploitation of elder/disabled person.


The Littleton woman was first arrested in May after police said they met with an elderly woman who told them her dead husband’s car was being held at Pomp Boys Motors for minor repairs.


The victim said when she went to pick up the car, she was told she was not allowed to know what work was being done and the car was given a price for vehicle storage. According to police, the victim said the price seemed too high, which is when she called the police.


Now, police said more victims have been found and the 59-year-old Pompliano was charged June 27 with the additional counts.


Pompliano was jailed on a $10,000 bond and was due in court June 28.


Police say if anyone feels they have been a victim of Vivian Pompliano or Pomp Boys Motors to contact them at 252-533-2810.
