LOCKWOOD, Mo. (KY3) - Investigators say, Mary Kahre, a resident of Lockwood, fell victim to a deceitful scheme in 2021 when individuals posing as driveway repairers took advantage of her trust. Initially offering a reasonable price for their services, they later inflated the cost, failed to complete the job, and departed.

However, recent developments have brought a potential resolution. Leroy Williams was apprehended in northeast Missouri and ordered to pay her back the $3,200. Dade County Sheriff’s deputies say they found Williams’ involvement in similar fraudulent activities across multiple states.

Reflecting on the incident, Kahre said she now only has people she knows working on her home. While repairs are still required for her driveway, Kahre learned valuable lessons from this experience.

When asked about her plans for utilizing the recovered funds, she said she plans to address it in the upcoming years.
