MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - The Mobile Police Department needs to help of the public in locating a home repair fraud suspect.
Police say in March 2013, an elderly woman was contacted by 53-year-old David Elwood Edwards, who convinced the victim that her brother referred him to install a security system in her home.
They say Edwards convinced the woman to make a large down payment for the installation by his company, NISSI Security. After Edwards never returned to do work, the victim discovered her brother had not referred Edwards and Edwards had cashed the check the day she wrote it to him.
Also, they say NISSI Security does not have a valid business license.
Edwards is wanted for second degree felony theft by deception and felony home repair fraud.
Financial Crimes detectives are continuing to investigate this case. Anyone who has seen Edwards or knows his location is asked to call the Mobile Police Department at (251) 208-7211.
