Florissant Home Repairman Scammed Homeowners, Police Say

St. Charles Police said the man took money to repair roofs, gutters and screens without intending to do the work.

A Florissant man was charged with taking money for home repairs in without intending to do the work.

Jason M. Leavy, 38, of the 1300 block of Brenthaven Lane in , was charged by the Missouri Attorney General’s Office with three counts of using deceptive business practices.

said Leavy made false promises to replace roofs, gutters and window screens on three homes in St. Charles. Police said he did not intend to do the work.

The St. Louis Area Better Business Bureau issued an alert on Leavy in March.

In the alert, Michelle Corey, BBB president and CEO, said Leavy’s actions have been “so flagrant and so chronic that his involvement in any type of construction work presents a real danger to the public.”

Leavy did business under several company names, including Accurate Construction Services and Tri-Star Roofing and Contracting of St. Charles, Midwest Roofing & Contracting, CRS, CRSI and Merit Construction, according to the Better Business Burea.

Leavy also was convicted in 2006 in St. Louis County and served four years in prison for defrauding homeowners.

Bond was set at $50,000.
