Ontario Provincial Police have arrested an Iroquois Falls contractor after multiple complaints from citizens state that he was failing to deliver on his home renovation promises.
Randy Dube, 25, the owner and operator of the company “Northern General Contracting,” has been charged with three counts of fraud under $5,000 and two counts of theft under $5,000. According to police, Dube was held for a bail hearing and he is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice on November 21, 2017.
“The investigation began in October after police received complaints of a male providing an estimate for work to be done on their home. The male required half of the payment up front to purchase materials. He was never heard from again,” said the news release from the OPP.
In the news release, officers believe there are other victims in the surrounding areas and encourage anyone who thinks they might have been a victim of this scam, to come forward to the Iroquois Falls OPP Detachment.
