Click on thumbnail to enlarge

Caddo Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a man for being an unlicensed contractor, said Sheriff Steve Prator.

Jason Youngblood was hired to remodel a house on Looney Street in May. The cost to complete the job was $10,198. Youngblood was paid half up front but did little work on the project, and a new contractor had to be hired.

During an investigation by Det. Jeremy Edward, it was discovered that neither Youngblood nor his company, Youngblood Construction, had a contractor’s license through the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors.

Youngblood, 46, of Greenwood, was arrested and booked into Caddo Correctional Center on January 30. He was charged with home improvement fraud.
