UPDATE: Robert Scifo has been taken into custody.

KUNKLETOWN, Pa. — A man from Monroe County charged with theft by deception never showed up for his trial.

According to officials, Robert Scifo was a no show for his trial scheduled to begin on Tuesday after he was charged with allegedly scamming clients.
