Clearfield man charged again for taking money, not building pool

Bradford Township, PA – Once again, a Clearfield man is accused of taking money and promising to build a pool for a customer, but he never followed through.

42-year-old Jarrod Rees had been contracted through his company, Woolery Pools / Jarrod’s Stamped Concrete, to install an above ground pool for a 32-year-old Woodland woman.

He required the payment in full when the contract was signed, so the victim gave Rees a check for $4,451 in April.

The check was cashed the next day, but they pool was never built. Rees also did not return the money when the victim requested it back.

Rees is charged with theft by deception, theft by failure to make required disposition of funds received, and home improvement fraud.

Earlier this month, Rees was also accused of taking $15,000 for an in-ground pool that was to be built at a Reynoldsville man’s home in May.

If you have a similar case of home improvement fraud, please call your local police.
