LAPD detectives with the financial crimes and elder abuse division have opened a criminal investigation into Saad Mazboudi, the owner of Denton Jewelers in Pacific Palisades.
This comes in the wake of a Palisadian-Post investigation, which found that Mazboudi and/or Denton Jewelers had been the subject of 27 lawsuits and several unpaid legal judgments.
Since the story ran, several additional people have come forward to the Post with allegations similar to those described in the story.
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact West LAPD detectives at 310-444-1567.
