ENID, Okla. — A 21-year-old Shawnee man charged Monday, Jan. 6, 2020, in Garfield County court with embezzlement and violating the Consumer Protection Act also is facing a felony charge of home repair fraud.
The charge accuses Chase Michael Kellogg of entering into a "consumer transaction" in June 2019 with a Fairmont man to build a shop that he promised performance he did not intend, or knew would not, be performed.
Kellogg was charged Monday with felony counts of embezzlement and violation of the Consumer Protection Act after failing to meet contract agreements for a contract he signed last year with a Waukomis man.
Kellogg faces up to 10 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $5,000 on the newest felony charge.
According to an affidavit filed in the new case, on Sept. 20, 2019, a man spoke with Garfield County Sheriff's Office Deputy Drew Gibson about a contract he had with Kellogg.
The man said the contract was completed and signed in June 2019, and the man said on the same day he wrote a $4,000 check to Kellogg to pay for the first part of the material for the shop he wanted built.
The man said there was a delay on construction due to the rain, but once the land was dry enough to begin construction, Kellogg was coming up with excuses to further delay the job.
The man said the check he wrote was cashed and the money taken from his account, according to the affidavit. He said he attempted contacting Kellogg in reference to the construction but was unsuccessful due to Kellogg changing his phone number.
Online court records show Kellogg has posted a total of $22,500 bond in his Garfield County cases and is set for arraignment on those charges Jan. 16.
