Contractor with expired license arrested for incomplete work
BATON ROUGE - Baton Rouge police have arrested another contractor accused of home improvement fraud.

After a few days, Carney and the complainant got into an argument and Carney left the job site. He never returned.
The homeowners discovered that Carney's contractor's license had expired in 2009. They are citing a loss of $6,700.
Carney was arrested and booked into EBRSO Parish Prison.
