Police say a man was paid nearly $14,000 to a complete home renovation, but used the money for an out-of-state vacation and to buy a friend a new transmission for his vehicle.

Robert Flores Rodriquez of Woodstock has been charged with felony theft by conversion after police say he scammed an Acworth client out of $13,830, which he was paid for home renovations that went uncompleted.

Police say he was paid $35,200 by six separate personal checks for the renovations.

According to a warrant, Rodriquez admitted he cashed the checks and took a balance of $13,800 without providing the services.

He also refused to pay a carpet company $1,400 for carpet installed in the home though the victim paid for all services and materials upfront, according to the warrant.
