Four Men Charged With Walking Out On Repair Work

Four South Mississippi men you may remember from some of AJ Giardina's Action Reports are under arrest. Three are charged with felony home repair fraud, a fourth with felony false pretense.

Valentino Salazar and Jonathan Rea were arrested after homeowners filed complaints with police that the men did not finish work they were paid to do.

Willie James is accused of taking $2,000 to install an air conditioner, but never buying or installing it. 

Kenneth Malley was also arrested. He's accused of taking money, but never finishing the plumbing work he was contracted to do.
