Wyoming Builder Pleads Guilty to Bilking Customers
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A Natrona County builder has acknowledged bilking customers out of thousands of dollars.
The Associated Press reports Greg Jarrard appeared in court Friday and pleaded guilty to five counts of larceny for stealing from customers in three Wyoming counties.
Prosecutors say they spoke with 20 of his customers who said they hired him to perform construction work, but he failed to complete a single project. Jarrard was accused of collecting more than $150,000 from clients across Wyoming while only providing $34,000 worth of work and materials.
Court documents identify eight of his clients as being from Natrona County, where authorities say he falsely claimed he was a licensed contractor.
Jarrard’s plea deal does not include a sentencing agreement.
