NEWKIRK — A warrant is issued for Jose Guadalupe Paez, 48, Ponca City, who is charged with a felony count of home repair fraud.

Kay County deputy John Grimes reports in the affidavit that a resident reached an agreement with Paez to pour a 30’x17’ concrete slab with a 4’x8” stem wall for the price of $5,000. The resident gave Paez a $5,000 check on April 2, 2018.

A week later Paez reportedly started digging the a ditch for the slab but never returned. The resident told the deputy he tried to call Paez numerous times and that one time a juvenile answered the phone but hung up.

Grimes attempted to reach Paez and made contact with Paez’s wife on Dec. 13, 2018, who reportedly told the deputy he went to Texas for a family issue. She told the deputy she did not have a good phone number for him.

The felony charge was filed on Feb. 25, 2019, and a warrant with bond endorsed at $50,000 is issued. In 2014 and 2016, Paez was charged with violation of the compulsory education act but never arrested on the charges. Anyone with information Paez’s location is asked to call law enforcement. No mug shot is available since he has not been arrested before.
