Authorities are searching for a Tarboro man suspected of stealing from and failing to do work he promised to do for a Hobgood man.
Milton Ray Draughn, 58, is wanted for felony larceny. He has not been apprehended.
Halifax County Sgt. H.G. Phillips said Draughn was hired by a Hobgood man to paint and do other odd jobs, but the victim reported several items were missing shortly after Draughn showed up for work. Draughn then never returned to finish the job and left the house in worse shape than it was before he was hired.
Phillips said Draughn is believed to be in Tarboro, possibly doing work around the Main Street area.
Anyone with information on Draughn’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office at 583-8201 or Crime Stoppers at 583-4444.
