COLORADO SPRINGS — The co-owner of a local roofing company has an active warrant out for his arrest for allegedly stealing from customers, according to a court affidavit.

Todd Halaburka, co-owner of Aspen Roofing and Exteriors in Colorado Springs, faces two counts of felonies against vulnerable persons, which is a class three felony. The arrest affidavit lists that three victims had sent work checks to the company, including replacing a roof and gutters, but no contract was ever struck.

David Wolfrum joined the company in July 2022 as a part-time sales representative. He said his father, Richard Wolfrum, hired the company to repair his roof in August 2022. According to the affidavit, the company had not started work by the end of August. The affidavit said Richard contacted the company and was told they were behind, but that they had recovered the permits to do the work.

“I’ve been in touch with him and I kept telling him I’ll be with you to the end, that no matter what that means, you either get a new roof or we’re going to finish this. I think we’re on our way to ending this and getting his money back,” David said.

David said he left his position at the roofing company in September after his father unexpectedly passed away. He said he and his sister Dawn have tried more than 20 times to contact Aspen Roofing and Exteriors about the unfinished work on their father’s property with little to no response.

“They wouldn’t give me any answers. The lady I spoke to basically said, ‘Oh yeah, we’ve set you up for next week.’ No, nothing happened,” said Dawn Marsh, David’s sister.

The affidavit shows that a bank account in the name of Aspen Roofing and Exteriors had a balance of $0.01 in the last half of November 2022
There were two transactions at a hardware store from August 2022 to November 2022. The affidavit said the remainder of the fees covered restaurants, grocery stores, coffee houses, veterinary care, a bar, hair salons, wine, a tropical fish shop, natural gas and more.

The State Secretariat confirmed that the roofing company voluntarily closed its doors on March 7, 2023, but the Wolfrum family is still fighting for their money back.

“We just want to give the money back to my family. I want to return it to my other customers so that nothing happens and nothing happens. We’re just walking away,” David said.

If you believe you are a victim of Aspen Roofing and Exteriors, you can call the Colorado Springs Police Department at 719-444-7000.
