OCEAN VIEW, Del. - A Snow Hill man has been arrested on home improvement fraud charges.

Delaware State Police say 55-year-old Michael Eline was stopped on Saturday afternoon for speeding, by a Bridgeville Police Officer, and turned over to Troopers because of a warrant for his arrest.

Police say the warrant stemmed from an incident that happened in April 2013, where Eline of Chelsea Builders, was hired by an Ocean View man to do some work on his Captains Court home. Police say Eline submitted a written proposal to the victim, who then gave him a deposit of $3,500. According to the report, by December of 2013, none of the work had been started, and Eline hadn't given back any of the money, after numerous requests from the victim.

Eline was charged with home improvement fraud, and released on bond. Police say in the past year, Chelsea Builders has ceased to exist.

DSP are asking anyone else that has fallen victim to similar crimes involving Michael Eline to contact Det. T. Shockley at 302-856-5850 ext. 257 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. Tips can also be submitted to the DSP Mobile Crime App, texting DSP to CRIMES (274637), or by visiting the TipSubmit website.
