In each case he neither completed nor performed the work.

Detectives also say Hendricks stolen a check from his girlfriend, forged her name to the check for the amount $4,850, cashed it and attempted to immediately withdraw the cash amount.

Charges against Hendricks include Dealing with Proceeds of Unlawful Activities, three counts of Home Improvement Fraud, four counts of Theft by Deception.

Hendricks was already being held in Lebanon County Prison on $25,000 on similar charges filed in May 2013.  His preliminary hearing on the new charges is scheduled for later this month.
