A Carlisle man has been accused of being given a check valued at more than $7,400 and failing to complete an understood construction project.

According to a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office complaint, Joe Miller, 43, S23 Highway , was charged May 25.

Miller allegedly was given a check for $7,498 for the down payment on a new building to be built by the end of June or July 1 of 2012.

Miller failed to construct the building when he said he would. The victim called Miller numerous times and was told that the problem would be relieved in a couple of weeks.

Several calls by the Sheriff's Office were made to Miller and a letter was sent to his home. No calls have been returned from Miller.

Second-degree theft valued at more than $1,000 is a Class-D felony, punishable up to five years in prison with a maximum fine of $7,500.
