MONROE, La. — A roofing contractor was charged Tuesday after removing the shingles from a customer’s roof during a payment dispute, causing thousands of dollars of damage, police said.
The work was completed in June 2016, and by December Higdon was asking her for payment. She said she could not pay the entire amount and offered to make payments but Higdon declined, according to the News Star.
Instead the woman returned home Dec. 22, 2016 to find her roof missing the shingles and roofing paper.
She was unable to cover the roof and rain caused $11,500 in damage to her ceiling and furniture, according to the News Star.
