Man charged with home repair fraud

Transcript Staff

A Norman man faces a charge of home repair fraud after he reportedly took money for construction work that he didn't perform.

Mark Wayne Shaver, 40, was charged Wednesday with home repair fraud in violation of the Oklahoma Consumer Protection Act.

According to police, the victim paid Shaver $600 in advance to build two porches on her home. The victim contacted authorities when Shaver failed to do the work. When police first contacted Shaver, he denied being paid. Later, he admitted being paid but said he gave the money back. Shaver told police a witness saw him return the money and would contact them, but no one came forward, police said. A warrant was issued for Shaver's arrest.

The attorney general's consumer protection unit has statewide jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute violations of the state's Consumer Protection Act. Anyone with information regarding suspected fraud or scams can call the attorney general's consumer protection hotline, 521-2029.

Other charges filed Wednesday include:

Ricky Chester Hauer, 57, Norman, false declaration of ownership in a pawn;

Halie Coeann Crawford, 30, Purcell, obtaining a controlled dangerous substance by fraud;

Sarah Sefcovic, 22, Norman, possession of a lost or mislaid credit card;

Matthew David Johnson, 18, Norman, grand larceny;

Floyd Eldon McCathern, 47, Yukon stalking;

Lloyd Wayne Moore, 56, Norman, indecent exposure;

David Levi Coffey, 39, Noble, domestic abuse;

Bobby Wayne Reed, 19, Norman, second-degree burglary (automobile); unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance;

Virginia Kay Hall, 54, feloniously pointing a firearm;

Gary Regan Renbarger, 46, Hennepin, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol;
