Taylor told the woman he would clean her gutters, and he later convinced her that her roof needed maintenance, Cheatham told the news station.
He said she wrote one check for $1,080 before Taylor said he made a mistake on the amount and that he would destroy the first check. She then wrote him another check for $1,280.
An arrest warrant obtained by Channel 2 said, “The victim’s family hired a reputable company to inspect the roof and was informed that no repairs had been made.”
Taylor faces several felony charges, including fraud and exploitation of the elderly, the news station reported.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Acworth police at 770-974-1232.
