A Manhattan man allegedly received $4,000 from a woman to install a fence at her residence in Plainfield but didn’t perform the job, according to a criminal complaint.
About 10 a.m. Wednesday, Adam M. Gleason, of the 500 block of Thelma Avenue, was arrested and taken to the Will County jail on charges of theft and home repair fraud in connection with the incident.
The charges allege that on Oct. 8, 2018, Gleason entered into a written contract with a Plainfield woman to install a fence at her residence in the 11600 block of South Heritage Meadows Drive.
Gleason allegedly received $4,000 but he “did not perform the agreed installation,” according to the criminal complaint.
Plainfield police investigated the incident.
On Feb. 20, Will County judge Ed Burmilia signed a warrant for Gleason’s arrest. The warrant carried a $75,000 bond.
After Gleason was taken to jail, he was able to post 10 percent of his bond. He was released at close to 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
On Dec. 23, 2014, Gleason was charged by Manhattan police with speeding. He later pleaded guilty to the charge on July 15, 2015.
He was given a conditional discharge of six months. He was also ordered to pay a fine of $400.
