More charges have been filed against the owner of an electronics repair store in Martinez.
54 year old Perry Bower, owner of Electric Medic in La Petite Plaza, was arrested last week on two counts of theft by deception. He posted bond, then was arrested yesterday on two more theft charges.
The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office says nearly 50 people have filed complaints against the business, saying they gave Bower a deposit for repair work to be done, mostly on televisions, and he either failed to do the work or wouldn’t return customers calls.
A judge ordered Bower to close the business and vacate the property within the next week.
