Charles Michael Bales
An unfinished concrete job landed a Limestone man in jail Friday on a fraud charge, Johnson City police said.
Charles Michael Bales, 367 Saylor Hill Road, was accused of taking $900 to install a concrete pad at a Jared Drive residence. Homeowner Innocent Irutingabo told police Bales started the job to expand his carport April 9 but never returned to complete the work.
Irutingabo had asked for a refund, but Bales did not respond, police said.
Bales was held in the Washington County Detention Center on $5,000 bond pending a Sessions Court appearance Monday.comments powered by Disqus
