BOURBON — A man is being charged with felony theft after being issued a $12,648.22 check for services he was contracted to provide.
Troy A. Sell, 31, 402 N. Main St., Bourbon, is being charged with theft, a level 6 felony.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, on July 26 an officer with the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department spoke with a man who advised he was in the process of building a new house and had contracted Sell, DBA Sell Designs, to provide cabinets for the home. On Aug. 25, 2015, the man wrote Sell a check for $12,648.22. It was cashed Sept. 1, 2015.
The man was able to provide a copy of the invoice for the cabinets and check number. His construction loan account and the check were endorsed by Troy Sell.
The man advised the officer that he has spoken with Sell in February 2016, and during the conversation Sell stated he was getting the cabinets manufactured at Kratmaid Cabinetry and provided an order form. When Sell failed to deliver the cabinets the man contacted Kraftmaid Cabinetry who could not confirm Sell had ordered cabinets with that order form. Attempts to contact Sell through March 2016 were unsuccessful.
Sell was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail on Dec. 19 with a $17,000 surety and cash bond.
