Local Contractor Charged With Theft

A Wausau area contractor is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from people he was supposed to be doing jobs for.

Prosecutors say Craig Tonkin, the owner of Home Style Improvements, habitually gives estimates and gets contracts for projects and takes half the money for a down payment, but never does the work.

He faces one misdemeanor and three felony charges of theft by contractor.  According to the criminal complaint, Tonkin took more than $12,000 worth of down payments from four potential customers, but never did the jobs.

He's free on a $10,000 signature bond.  If convicted, Tonkin faces more then 12 years in prison.
