American Shingle and Siding Shuts Its Doors
Business

Thousands of homeowners have been left in the lurch by an Atlanta based roofing company.
It abruptly closed its doors after taking large deposits from homeowners for roofing jobs and not finishing the work.
Now our center for investigative action has learned a criminal investigation is underway.

The Bibb County Sheriff's Department in Macon has launched an investigation after American Shingle and Siding closed its doors earlier this month after taking large deposits from homeowners for roofing work. Captain Mike Smallwood said,""There will be criminal charges." He believe the company will be charged with theft by conversion.

The owner of American Shingle, Carlton DeWayne Dunko, says he did not deposit those checks and plans to return them. However, he said he had gotten into financial difficulty has was using new deposits to pay creditors rather than using the money to do the specific jobs that the deposits were for.

American Shingle says it owes $2 million to employees and vendors and hopes that customers who still owe the company money will pay so that the company isn't forced into bankruptcy.

So far no word of any bankruptcy filings and no charges have been filed against the company.
