On May 24, 2019 around 1:10 PM, a township resident responded to our station to report an issue with a contractor. She is making home improvements to her kitchen and reached out to Carpet Mart for an estimate. Jeffrey Edwards, a sub-contractor for Carpet Mart, came to her home. He provided her his own business card and persuaded her to use him instead of Carpet Mart.
Edwards supposedly has his own business. The victim was paid $600 for supplies and the actual installation work. Edwards was to begin some time in early April. He repeatedly gave a date to start the work and then not show up. Edwards was provided several opportunities to make the victim whole by the police. Charges filed against Edwards.
