DESIGNING MAN: Boca Homeowner Claims Decorator Ran Off With Cash

UPDATE: Boca Raton Police have identified the suspect as Steven Morris Hefner of Hillsboro Beach. His office is located at 345 West Palmetto Park Road.

BOCA RATON, FL ( — We don’t know names — yet — but can report that Boca Raton Police are investigating the claim by a homeowner that an interior designer made off with a lot of money without providing the goods.

And by a lot of money, we mean $371,000.

The police report states that the money was for “custom decor” and that “the checks have since been cashed and none of the decor/furniture has been purchased or delivered.”

We’ll update with the name of the designer when and if the claim is substantiated by Boca Raton Police.
