Unlicensed Lake Havasu City Man
Arrested in California
PHOENIX, Ariz., (July 15, 2021) – On Friday, July 9, 2021, the Fontana Police Department arrested Tielman Lindsay, 40 of Lake Havasu City, in Fontana, California, after locating a vehicle wanted out of Fresno for a burglary involving the theft of high-powered rifles. cC
In Arizona, Lindsay is wanted on a Failure to Appear Warrant issued by the Lake Havasu Municipal Court on April 22, 2021, and faces the charge of Contracting Without a License, a Class 1 Misdemeanor.
The charge stems from a 2021 Arizona Registrar of Contractors’ case that found Lindsay DBA TTS Landscape and Maintenance, and Trinity Tree Services LLC, contracted to install travertine tile pavers at a Lake Havasu City home for $5,500.
Lindsay accepted $3,800 as a down payment for the job but never returned to start the work or deliver materials. Nearly four months later the homeowner, unable to get a hold of Lindsay, filed a complaint with AZ ROC who submitted the case for prosecution review.
Lindsay’s next hearing is scheduled for July 19, 2021, at 8:30 AM in the Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court in Rancho Cucamonga, California.
AZ ROC investigated one other case against Lindsay in 2013. AZ ROC submitted the case for prosecution review and issued Lindsay a $2,500 civil penalty.
AZ ROC reminds home and property owners that if the entire cost of the project, including labor and materials is over $1,000 or requires a permit by the local municipality, Arizona law requires the person or business performing the work to be licensed. Always check the license before hiring a contractor at www.roc.az.gov or by giving the Agency a call at (877)-692-9762.
