ROCK HILL, S.C. — Deputies have arrested a York man who they say took money to perform home and remodeling jobs, then left without doing the work.
The Herald of Rock Hill reports 37-year-old Earl “Trey” Ocey Gulledge is charged with six counts of fraud and breach of trust.
According to a press release from the York County Sheriff’s Office, Gulledge promised to do home and remodeling work for clients. But instead, he took the victims’ money and never started or finished the job. Authorities say both cases totaled approximately $10,800.
Investigators say Gulledge’s remodeling and roofing business would also hire out subcontractors to do work for him, but wouldn’t pay the contractors for the work completed.
Gulledge is free on bond. It’s not known if he has an attorney.
