Contractor with expired license arrested for incomplete work
BATON ROUGE - Baton Rouge police have arrested another contractor accused of home improvement fraud.
According to police documents, Paul Carney was hired to repair the walls of a home damaged by last year's August flood. The homeowners observed repeated instances of "poor quality workmanship" from Carney.
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.
