A Prince Edward County man is facing charges after several homeowners reportedly told police they had paid for roofing work that was never done.

An OPP investigation into the claims began on July 16, when police say two people reported they had paid for work on their roofs but that the work had not been started.

As of July 29, five other victims had come forward, according to police.

Michael Crandall, 37, was originally charged with two counts of fraud over $5,000 in July.
