Hatton man accused of ripping off home owners


Lawrence County deputies have arrested and charged a man with two counts of theft.

Investigators say Christopher Michael Wilburn approached people in Lawrence County, offering to do different types of home repairs and maintenance. Sheriff Gene Mitchell says Wilburn would ask for payment up front, but then never return to do the work.

Sheriff Mitchell says there are several complaints against Wilburn and the investigation into some of them is ongoing.

Wilburn is being held in the Lawrence County Jail on $5,000 bond.
