Man accused of failing to fix dishwasher, running off with the check
BATON ROUGE - The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office has arrested a man who posed as a handyman and took the victim's money.
According to the affidavit, 38-year-old Evan Stribling told a resident he worked for Tiger Town Appliance and was hired to fix the victim's dishwasher in November 2016.
The victim wrote a check for nearly $260 before the job was completed. That check was made out to and cashed by Stribling's girlfriend.
According to the victim, Stribling never began work on the dishwasher and blocked all contact with the victim.
It was later discovered that Stribling is not affiliated with Tiger Town Appliance.
Stribling was arrested and booked into EBRSO Parish Prison. He is facing residential contractor fraud charges.
Upon further investigation, WBRZ discovered Stribling has been investigated at least five times for similar crimes.
