OKLAHOMA CITY -- A contractor who faces eight felony fraud charges for not performing roofing repairs he was paid to do has been arrested in Oklahoma County.

Whitt was featured on one of Amanda Taylor's Consumer Watch reports back in 2009. Online booking records show that 57-year-old Harold Whitt was arrested by Oklahoma City police on Tuesday. Records indicate he was being held in the Oklahoma County Jail Thursday with bond set at $24,000.

Court records do not indicate whether he is represented by an attorney. Attorney General Scott Pruitt's office on Monday charged Whitt with six counts of violating the Oklahoma Consumer Protection Act in Oklahoma County and two counts in Cleveland County.

Using the company name All Pro Construction, Whitt is accused of signing contracts with homeowners in those counties to replace the roofs of several homes although no work was performed.
