A man who reportedly took payment to begin a construction job at a Midway home never began the work.

According to a report filed Monday with the Greene County Sheriff's Department, the Arrowhead Loop woman said that in March 2022 she spoke with the suspect about building a room on her home. The suspect said the job would cost $8,500 and he would need half of the money up front.

The victim wrote a check to the suspect for $4,000. After the suspect picked up the check, he told the victim he had purchased the wood and was storing it in his building.

The victim last spoke with the suspect on June 7, 2022 and was told he would be at her residence to start building on June 27. The victim has contacted the suspect since then, but has not heard back from him.
