LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been arrested after police say he scammed the city of Shively out of more than $6,900.
Police say that on June 29, 2011, 55-year-old Charles V. Judd received a check for $6,940 to perform concrete work on city property.
He never performed any of that work, according to an arrest warrant.
The alleged crime was reported to Shively Police, and officers were able to track Judd down via the records they had of his driver's license. City representatives attempted to contact Judd by phone, by letter and in person, but they were unable to reach him.
Police contacted him Tuesday evening, according to an arrest report. He was arrested and charged with theft by failure to make required disposition of property.
