BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A New Orleans man is behind bars after failing to honor the contract with an East Baton Rouge Parish resident, according to officials.

Court documents state Lloyd Marmillion, 44, was booked Monday.

According to the arrest warrant, a victim of the August 2016 floods hired Marmillion to repair his home. The homeowner said it was a verbal agreement and reportedly paid Marmillion in February 2017 to replace cabinets and countertops in the kitchen and two bathrooms.

The report stated the victim paid Marmillion on three other occasions and believed Marmillion was telling the truth when he allegedly told the homeowner some of the items were on backorder.

According to the warrant, the victim told investigators he has not been able to get in contact with Marmillion since June 3, 2017 and the work was not completed. It added the victim told deputies he had to spend more money to hire another contractor to finish the repairs.

Marmillion is charged with residential contractor fraud. His bond is set at $5,000.
