Collinsville, IL (KSDK) - A Pontoon Beach, Illinois man was charged in Madison County Friday with aggravated home repair fraud and theft by deception.
Authorities say 22-year-old Noah Boswell offered to trim trees at an elderly person's home in Collinsville, and told the victim he would fix the concrete on the sidewalks in front of the home.
Boswell then charged the victim $3,900.
Authorities were called to the home of the victim after someone reported the resident may have been the victim of financial exploitation.
Charges were issued, but Boswell is not yet in custody, and is considered "wanted" by the Madison County Sheriff's Office.
