Police looking for man selling bogus roof repairs
BATON ROUGE- Police are looking for a man, accused of collecting money from homeowners for roof repairs but never completing the work.
According to a warrant, Kermit Joseph Leger, Jr., is wanted for theft of the assets of an aged person or disabled person and felony theft.
Investigators said Leger was able to get between $6,000 and $7,000 from two victims but are concerned there could be more people who paid for work that was never completed. Court documents suggest Leger might be targeting previous clients.
He was fired from a roofing company, documents reported.
Leger's last known address was near Lafayette but police believe he frequents Baton Rouge.
The Financial Crimes division is handling the case for Baton Rouge Police.
