OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter has filed felony charges against a contractor in Noble who allegedly received thousands of dollars from Oklahomans in exchange for roofing repairs he never completed.
The four felony counts against Chad Davis, 38, come after the attorney general’s office filed three prior felony charges against him in February.
In all seven charges, investigators allege Davis followed the same pattern of fraudulent behavior by using his company, Storm Shield Roofing and Restoration, to solicit customers, including several senior citizens, under the guise of roof replacements or repairs that he then refused to complete. Authorities say in both cases, Davis took around $40,000 from the victims.
All of the charges have been filed in Washington and Oklahoma counties, where the crimes were allegedly committed.
Hunter says it’s likely additional victims exist.
“Unfortunately, when we see a pattern of criminal behavior, as in this case, there are typically more victims than the ones who came to us,” Attorney General Hunter said. “This individual repeatedly used the same plan of deception to target Oklahomans trying to repair their homes after severe weather. Taking advantage of Oklahomans, especially targeting the elderly for personal gain, is inexcusable.”
The attorney general is encouraging individuals to contact the Consumer Protection Unit in his office if they experienced issues when working with Davis or his company at 1-833-681-1895, or email at email@example.com.
