Police busted a Corinth man for allegedly accepting money for roof work he never provided.
On Thursday June 15th, 2017, the Corinth Police Department arrested Charles Fairchild, 37, for Theft of Property ($30,000 or more but less than $150,000), a third-degree Felony. Fairchild was booked into the Denton County jail and was released the same day on a $5000.00 bond.
Corinth Police investigators collaborated with other area police departments and learned that Fairchild was also a suspect in other similar type offenses in Carrollton and Denton.
Fairchild received a True Bill of Indictment from the Denton County Grand Jury on June 15th, 2017 after Corinth, Carrollton and Denton Police investigators filed multiple cases against him for taking pre-construction deposits from homeowners on behalf of his company, Metroplex Roof and Fence, Inc. and not ever starting or completing the work.
“We know of five victims so far; three in Corinth and one each in Carrollton and Denton, with losses estimated at $33,000,” said Greg Wilkerson, Corinth Assistant Police Chief. “We be believe that there are other victims.”
