The Richfield Police Department has announced the arrest of Cory Friedman and they are looking for anyone else he may have victimized.

The 31-year-old Twinsburg man turned himself in Tuesday.

According to police, Friedman’s arrest was the result of a lengthy investigation into Simply Elegant Weddings, a business operated by Friedman and located in Richfield. It closed without notice in April of this year.

The investigation began after about nine complaints were received from victims regarding Friedman accepting money from clients for wedding and party services, but never providing the services.

Some of the complaints also allege Friedman gave out fake names to customers.

Friedman faces one count of theft. Police say more evidence will be presented to a grand jury.

He is being held in the Summit County Jail. 

Anyone victimized Simply Elegant Weddings who has not yet come forward should contact the Detective Bureau of the Richfield Police Department.
