An Oklahoma man was arrested after allegedly stealing $30,000 from a Florida homeowner while he posed as a licensed contractor, police say.
Michael Shannon Key was charged with unlicensed contracting during a state of emergency and grand theft. He is accused of stealing money from at least one resident of Fort Myers, Florida, after Hurricane Ian last year.
Fort Myers Police Department says that Key solicited mold removal services to local residents without proper state licensing. The suspect arrived in the city shortly after the hurricane.
Key also allegedly fled to his home state after he was given a huge payment.
