A man suspected of swindling vendors at the San Joaquin County fair last July and leaving town with the proceeds is wanted by the Stockton Police Department.
Melvin Monroe Adams organized the event at the fair grounds in Stockton using the name Michael Allen, according to the Stockton Police Department. He worked under two companies: “Next Level Concert Group” and “Blackstar Artist Management.”
The department said Adams is wanted on $600,000 Felony Criminal Arrest and citizens are encouraged to call if they have information related to this investigation.
For the event held last summer -- named the "San Joaquin County Family Fair" -- Adams contracted with companies for entertainment, food and other vendors, sound/stage/audio equipment, and the fair grounds venue.
