Man accused of home improvement fraud in Apollo, North Apollo
A 46-year-old contractor is accused of home improvement fraud and theft in North Apollo and Apollo last year.
Charles Todd Doland of Woodward Avenue, Apollo, is accused of accepting almost $11,000 in upfront money but not doing the work.
He allegedly took a $4,700 down payment to install a metal roof on a structure on March 18, 2018, Kiski Township police allege.
According to Kiski Township police, when the work wasn’t done by July, Doland assured the homeowners he would contact the supplier. He also allegedly agreed to put a tarp on the leaking roof.
Doland failed to do any of that, police said, and he didn’t give the homeowner the name of the supplier.
This month Kiski Township police charged Doland with theft by deception, receiving stolen property, and three counts of home improvement fraud.
Doland was arraigned April 18 and released on combined $20,000 unsecured bond pending a May 1 preliminary hearing for both cases by District Judge James Andring.
Doland didn’t return messages left for comment. An attorney wasn’t listed in either case.
