A Kokomo contractor faces felony charges of home improvement fraud and theft after allegedly ripping off a local family for thousands of dollars in uncompleted work, The Kokomo Tribune reports.

Fredrick Northrop, 47, remains in the Howard County jail after he was arrested last week in a case that stretches to late 2018 and includes an enhanced felony charge for a crime involving a swindled senior citizen.

The investigation started on Jan. 29 when a 42-year-old woman arrived at the police station with her 70-year-old mother claiming to have been defrauded by Northrop and his company, AAA Construction.

Investigators discovered a job that had gone wrong from the start, according to police documents.

Police arrested him on Feb. 21. He is currently in jail on a $29,000 cash bond, and has an initial hearing scheduled fro March 4 in Howard Superior Court 1.
