Nassau County officials announced Thursday the arrest of 61 unlicensed home improvement contractors accused of targeting Hurricane Sandy victims.

Officials said they received more than 100 complaints from Sandy victims who were taken advantage of by contractors that led to a sting operation.

Officials say one contractor took $80,000 from a customer and never completed the repairs.
