In April, a resident reported to the police that they had paid the suspect, identified as Thomas Faucher, 45, of New Canaan, a large sum of money for his business to perform renovations on their home in May of 2018. In October of 2018, the work began to slow, and Faucher informed the complainants that he needed more money to continue, which they complied with.
After the second payment and having paid Faucher a total of $650,000, no more work was done and the project was not completed. The complainant made contact with the subcontractors, who informed them that Faucher had stopped paying them. The complainant paid the subcontractors directly in order to have the project finished.
An arrest warrant charging Faucher with the above crimes was obtained. On June 9, Faucher turned himself in to police and was processed for six counts of providing cancellations and three counts of failure to provide oral cancelations . He was released on $30,000 bond and is due in court on June 20.
