Lock Haven, Pa. — A contractor stole nearly $20,000 from a fire victim who paid the owner of the construction company to rebuild a shed and repair fire damage to a home, according to the police.

Mill Hall police arrested Cody Daniel Shane McHenry, 33, on Friday and was charged with four counts of home renovation fraud. McHenry, owner of McHenry Roofing and Construction in Lock Haven, had received an $18,450 payment from an individual to rebuild a storage shed that had burned down, according to Officer Brandon Coleman. McHenry was also supposed to repair the individual’s home which was also damaged in the fire. McHenry never completed the work and when the landlord demanded he return the money, McHenry refused, police say.

McHenry Roofing, located on North Vista Drive, was sued earlier this year, according to court records. He was convicted and ordered to pay $5,224. Several complaints about the company have been listed with the Better Business Bureau alleging that the company did shoddy work or accepted payment for work that was never completed.

McHenry was transported to Clinton County Jail following his arrest, records show. A preliminary hearing on the charges is set for August 16 at 8:30 a.m. before District Judge Frank P. Mills.
