Lancaster contractor charged with theft by deception after failing to complete job, police say
LANCASTER COUNTY — A Lancaster contractor has been charged with theft by deception for the second time this year after police say he took a victim’s money and did not complete the job.
Jason B. Retallack, 42, took $2,975 from the victim in the 100 block of Thunderbird Lane in February, according to Manheim Township police. He began working on a home improvement project, but never completed the job, police say. He also refused to return the money to the victim, police allege.
A criminal complaint against Retallack was filed on August 2, and he was taken into custody at his home on Monday.
