CONCORDó A Derry man is accused of bilking 15 people out of more than $70,000 in a roofing and home repair scam in which police say he took customersí deposits and never completed or did the repairs.
Timothy J. Currier, 30, of 125 Windham Road, was indicted by a Merrimack County grand jury on a felony charge of theft by unauthorized taking or transfer.
Currier operated a roofing company, Green Home Energy Systems, LLC, in Bow, which also did other home repairs, such as installing replacement windows and doors.
According to the indictment, Stephen Benoit gave Currier $10,000 as a down payment on a new roof, but Currier never did the work and never returned the money. Connie Belliveau paid $1,572 to have the fascia soffit on her roof repaired, but the work was never done and Currier allegedly kept the money.
