Police: Chenango Forks Contractor Took $24,000, Didn’t Do Work
A Broome County man faces three felony counts for allegedly taking thousands of dollars for contracting jobs that were never completed.
Authorities said 63-year-old Thomas Brick of Chenango Forks is accused of taking money from someone last April for three separate projects.
State police investigators determined Brink was paid more than $24,000 for the planned work. He allegedly didn't complete the job at one site and didn't start work or purchase materials at two other properties.
The investigation began in early July. Brick was arrested on Friday and processed at the State Police Norwich station before being taken to Chenango County Jail for arraignment.
