NPSO: CLOUTIERVILLE MAN ARRESTED AGAIN FOR CONTRACTOR FRAUD

Charles Beaudion

On Friday Oct. 5 Detectives arrested Charles Nathan Beaudion, 52 of 2533 Hwy 491 in Cloutierville, on 2-counts of Contractor Fraud according to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriffs Office.

The charges stemmed from two separate cases worked by Investigators one of which occurred in October 2017 where Beaudion under his company Allied Roofing was paid approximately $29,000 to remodel a residence in the Oak Grove community, but after 2 months the homeowner discovered the house had been dismantled in a lot areas and never replaced. The homeowner whom was not living in the house during the remodeling discovered jewelry missing, and terminated Allied Roofing.

The second charge resulted from Allied Roofing being paid $3,000 as down payment to do a roof repair in the Goldonna area back in May and as of October had not done any work.

Under Louisiana Contractor fraud statue it states that work must be done within 45-day intervals.

Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Detectives also holds and outstanding warrant on Beaudion for Contractor Fraud in the Forest Hill area.

Allied Roofing has been under a Cease and Desist Order from the Louisiana State Board of Licensing for Contractors since January 2015 which stemmed from prior contractor fraud charges.

In addition Beaudion was currently out on $100,000 bond set back in March when he was arrested on 3-counts of Contractor Fraud with the stipulation he was not to commit any criminal acts and was to comply with the Cease and Desist Order previously issued by the State.

As a result of this the District Attorney Office filed a motion to revoke the original bond and to set a bond on the 2 recent charges, Judge Dyess of the 10th Judicial District Court after hearing evidence on Monday at the hearing revoked Beaudion’s original $100,000 bond and added an additional $100,000 for the new charges with the same stipulations as the original bond.

As of news release time Beaudion was currently being held in the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center on a $200,000 bond and a hold for Rapides Parish.

Chief Investigator Greg Dunn states that other charges are forthcoming on Allied Roofing employees as the investigation continues.
