Illinois man investigated for home repair fraud, theft

MADISON COUNTY, Il. (KMOV.com) - Authorities are investigating an Illinois man for home repair fraud and theft.

Court documents said Chadlynn D. Bennett, 40, agreed to make repairs to a Scott Credit Union property in Alton with no intention of actually doing the work. The contract was worth $8,500.

Official records also said Bennett knowingly obtained unauthorized control over the Scott Credit property, through deception, and intended to permanently keep the owner from using or keeping the value of the property. He reportedly cashed a $8,500 check under the promise of performing work which he never began.
