Man Who Took Payment for Project, Then Failed to Complete Work Due Back in Court Tomorrow

JEFFERSON CO., Pa. (EYT) – An area man who allegedly accepted over $5,000.00 for a construction project, then never completed the work is due back in court Thursday.

Court documents indicate a hearing for 51-year-old Jeffrey Dean Larson, of Brockport, that was continued on Monday, May 11, is scheduled to resume at 11:30 a.m. on July 9.

Larson faces one third-degree felony count of theft by deception-false impression.

The charge stems from a report related to an unfinished construction project.

Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint, on January 25, a known victim reported he hired Jeffrey Dean Larson to build a canopy-style roof over his camper and said Larson accepted $5,747.23 and agreed to build the roof on July 15, 2019.

The victim told police after multiple calls, and Larson having failed to start the work, the victim began to do the work himself on August 16, 2019, the complaint states.

Larson allegedly returned on August 21, 2019, and dug seven holes, but the last time Larson was at the site was September 11, 2019, and he never returned after that date.

The complaint notes that on October 1, 2019, an agreement of completion date of October 20, 2019, was signed by Larson, but he failed to return to complete the promised work and did not return any of the payment.

The charge was filed against Larson through Magisterial District Judge Gregory M. Bazylak’s office on March 11.
