Sheriff's Office looking for ‘Joe the Pool Man' on grand larceny charge

CICERO, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a local “pool man” who they believe accepted $2,500 from a homeowner to replace his in-ground pool liner, but then took off without completing the work.

33-year-old Joseph Whoston is known locally as “Joe the Pool Man” – and has been the subject of a number of On the Lookout segments on NewsChannel 9.

They say Whoston may be in the company of his girlfriend, Nikki Schock, who is also wanted for probation violation.

Whoston’s last known address is 8422 Torchwood Lane in Cicero, a house that since been sold to new owners.

His former landlord has a $4,000 judgment against him for back rent.

Investigators say his girlfriend may be living with relatives in another state.

They believe Whoston is still working in the pool business wherever he is now.

They are concerned that he may try to con other unwitting victims.

Whoston is 5-foot-8 and 154 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes.

He normally wears a slight beard.

If you can help the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office find Whoston, call (315) 435-3051.
