On June 3, 2022, and investigation was opened in reference to a case of contractor fraud. During the investigation it was discovered that the suspect Chad Fritz of Breaux Bridge agreed to complete a construction job for the victim who resides in Evangeline Parish. Once a contract was agreed upon, the suspect began the construction job but had never completed nor honored the contract. The contract was signed in November of 2021.
After approximately four months, the suspect still had not completed his contractor job and had charged the victim approximately 44,500.00 that have never been refunded. Through the investigation, Detectives were able to gather enough evidence to obtain an arrest warrant for the suspect. He was later located in Lafayette and booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center. He was subsequently extradited to Evangeline Parish where he was booked into the Parish Jail for Contractor Fraud. His bond was set at $50,000.00. As always, all suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
