Brad Saylor, 30, 5100 block McCartney Road, was charged with theft.
Saylor conferenced with the Venice Road construction company’s employees multiple times before they awarded him the job of sealing and stripping their lot, according to a police report.
Even though employees were suspicious of the man at first, they were reassured after he walked them through his process and even met with the company’s owner.
But when employees handed over $900 upfront for supplies, Saylor immediately cashed the check and started ignoring their calls, the report said.
The city prosecutor authorized the theft charge, and Saylor was arrested earlier this week, the report said.
