Prosecutor: Wildwood Crest Builder Didn’t Do $200,000 Worth of Work
Authorities say a man from Wildwood Crest is in trouble with the law for allegedly failing to perform over $200,000 worth of construction work.
Cape May County Prosecutor Jeffrey Sutherland and Chief of County Detectives Paul Skill say 57-year-old John Ferry was arrested last week for a theft-related offense.
According to Sutherland's office, "multiple complaints regarding Ferry were received by the Cape May County Department of Consumer Affairs. These complaints were then passed on to the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office and a investigation was subsequently initiated."
Last Thursday, Ferry was arrested and charged with theft in excess of $200,000 for taking money from three separate victims and never completing construction work that was agreed upon.
Sutherland says anyone who may have information regarding this investigation, or theft from any other contractor, is asked to contact the Cape May County Department of Consumer Affairs at (609) 886-2903 or the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office at (609) 465-1135.
The public is reminded that charges are accusations and all persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
