The owner of a Vero Beach pool company has been convicted of ripping off more than a hundred customers out of millions.

Look up Amore Pools Inc. on Google and you'll find a countless number of complaints from people in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast who each paid thousands to Brian Washburn and his wife to install a brand new swimming pool, but were either left with an incomplete mess or nothing at all.

With the help of Florida's Attorney General's office, Brian Washburn was found guilty on 12 felony charges, including organized scheme to defraud and money laundering.

Ashley Moody says Amore Pools stole nearly $3 million from homeowners. More than twenty victims testified during the two-week trial that concluded Tuesday.

Brian and Chrystal Washburn were arrested in October, following an FDLE investigation.

No date has been set for Chrystal's trial.
