STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAW) - Prosecutors in Portage County have filed 37 counts against a contractor accused of stealing nearly $700,000.

Jeffrey Feist, 48, was charged Monday with numerous counts of theft and forgery.

In June, Plover Police said the contractor was accused of defrauding 19 victims of $690,000. This summer, investigators executed a search warrant at a home in the town of Dewey. They said the search was a result of a several months-long investigation into fraudulent activity conducted by a local home builder.

Feist is free on a $10,000 cash bond.

He’s scheduled to learn if his case will head to trial on Jan. 25.
