LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A Petal man accused of swindling folks out of money on pool construction and repair is in the Lamar County jail as of Tuesday evening.

Jason Howard was arrested this afternoon on a warrant from Lamar County for a misdemeanor of false pretense involving construction of a pool.

Howard was already out on bond from a previous home repair fraud charge and will have a bond revocation hearing Wednesday morning. Howard was arrested after an arraignment this morning in Lamar County was postponed until November 10th. The hearing had to be postponed after Howard's attorney, Ed Pittman, resigned from the case.

Howard has been the subject of several news 7 investigations recently into pool fraud covering several counties.
