Charles Bales
WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. -

Johnson City police arrested a man Friday morning they say didn't finish a concrete job he was paid for.

Charles Michael Bales of Limestone is charged with contractor fraud.

Police say a city resident paid Bales $900 to install a concrete pad on his property. They say Bales began the project on April 9 and never finished it.

The victim asked for his money back and police say Bales never responded.

He's scheduled to appear in court on Monday for an arraignment.
