GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Harrison County authorities say a felon on probation for a felony bad-check conviction is now accused of home-repair fraud.

Sheriff Troy Peterson tells The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/24APjVM) a homeowner had paid 45-year-old Mitchell Ramone Shope nearly $29,000 in advance for renovations and has filed a complaint alleging Shope failed to complete the work.

Deputies arrested Shope in Gulfport on Monday.

Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain set his bond at $30,000.

The state Department of Corrections has placed a hold on Shope.

He is held at the Harrison County jail.

Online jail records did not list an attorney for Shope.
