Police say an 82-year-old man gave a South Roxana man $250 to trim his trees, but the man never returned to do the work.
Casey Renard reportedly told the man he worked for All-Pro Paving out of Collinsville, and took a $250 down payment to trim the 82-year-old man's trees in South Roxana on Feb. 7, according to a news release from the South Roxana Police Department.
Police say Renard never returned to perform the work.
The 39-year-old man was charged Tuesday with aggravated home repair fraud and a warrant was issued for his arrest. His bail was set at $60,000, and had not been taken into custody as of Wednesday morning.
