A Hattiesburg man wanted for home repair fraud is in the custody of Gulf Coast authorities. On Wednesday, the attorney general's office said Lance Joseph Ledet turned himself in to the Harrison County Adult Detention Center.
Ledet was wanted for felony home repair fraud. The A.G.'s office received a complaint in November of 2006 that Ledet took a $35,000 down payment regarding a modular home he was suppose to do work on. He never started the work.
This arrest was a part of Operation Hammer Strike that has now resulted in eleven arrests.
