A Florida man who worked for a now-defunct southern New Jersey construction company has admitted his role in a scheme in which he purposely damaged homes he claimed had been hit by hail.

New Jersey authorities announced Monday that 34-year-old Marcin Gradziel of Lake Worth pleaded guilty to insurance fraud. He faces seven years in prison when he's sentenced Oct. 18.

Gradziel admitted that in December 2010, he was responsible for fraudulent claims being submitted for damage to three homes in Gloucester and Camden counties. At the time, he was living in Pennsylvania and working for Voorhees-based Precision Network Solutions

Investigators learned company representatives were canvassing neighborhoods, claiming homes were damaged in a hail storm. They told homeowners they could get new siding and roofing at no cost.
