Search for victimized renters in Cedar Rapids

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- The U.S. Attorney's Office is looking for people who may be entitled to money from a criminal landlord in Cedar Rapids.

Robert Meill pleaded guilty to charges he fraudulently kept renters' deposits between 2000 and 2007. He faces prison time and possibly may have to pay restitution to former renters.

"In order to determine if restitution is owed to those tenants and the amount of restitution that might be owed, we need to hear from those tenants," said U.S. Attorney Matt Dummermuth.

If you rented from Miell and think you may be entitled to restitution, contact the U.S. Attorney's Office in Cedar Rapids at (319) 297-3704 or e-mail mailto:USAIAN.Victims@usdoj.gov.
