Boardman police charge man with theft by deception



Published: Fri, July 11, 2014 @ 11:15 a.m.

BOARDMAN

Township police arrested a man Thursday on a charge of theft by deception after he reportedly cashed a check for $1000 for repair work that his business never completed.

According to a police report, Steven Johnson, 49, of Lisbon, was arrested after a Boardman woman reported that she hired his company, Chelsea Chimney Service LLC, 8340 Thomas Road in Lisbon, to repair her chimney last July and the company failed to do so.

According to the report, the victim received an estimate of $1875 for the repair and sent a check for $1000 to the company for a deposit.

The check was chased, but "As of the time of the report, no repairs have been completed, and she has not been able to make contact with anyone at the business." The report was filed in May.

The woman also contacted the Better Business Bureau and the Ohio Attorney General's Office. The victim reported it to the Township police because Boardman police documentation was needed for the Attorney General's Office to proceed in its investigation.

Johnson posted bond and will appear in court Tuesday, July 15.
