Man charged with taking $5K in home improvement scam

BLAIR COUNTY, Pa (WTAJ) — Police have arrested a male who allegedly took $5,000 for a property enhancement challenge that he by no means did.

Ronald David Snyder, 59, was arrested, following reportedly having dollars to re-facet a man’s property in August 2021.

In accordance to law enforcement paperwork, the target said that Synder wanted $5,000 for resources and yet another $4,200 for the labor. The home-owner agreed and paid out $5,000 for components but Synder in no way returned to do any of the function.

The house owner contacted the company the siding was intended to be purchased from and was advised that Synder had hardly ever purchased any materials on behalf of the house owner. Soon after acquiring out, the target contacted the law enforcement.
