A Benton man was arrested this week in Caddo Parish for home improvement fraud, said Sheriff Steve Prator.

In July, Myles Cavazos, 28, contracted a residential home improvement job for $10,000 without proper licensing through the state of Louisiana.  The victim paid the entire amount with one check, which Cavazos cashed.  Cavazos completed some of the work then eventually stopped and took another job out of state. 

Cavazos was arrested by Sheriff’s Det. Casey Jones on one count of home improvement fraud. He was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center on Wednesday.
