MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A Shelby County woman said a man agreed to repair her roof, took her insurance check, and never did the work.

On October 24, 2014, Diana Dickerson met with 68-year-old Earnest Wells, who agreed to repair her roof for her. 

She then wrote him a check for $3,790.47 for the repairs. 

According to the affidavit, Dickerson said that she and Wells signed a contract on October 28, 2014 so the work can begin. 

Dickerson said Wells never did the repairs. She sent him a letter demanding payment, but has still not received a refund. 

Dickerson identified Wells in a photo lineup. Investigators tried to contact the suspect, but were unsuccessful.
