David Carl Hall

An unlicensed handyman charged with ripping off Villagers has forfeited bond and is being sought by law enforcement.

A Lake County judge issued a warrant for the arrest of 47-year-old David Carl Hall after he failed to show up in court last week to answer to a charge of unlicensed contracting.

His $4,000 bond has been forfeited.

Hall been arrested in December after allegedly ripping off a Villager in the wake of Hurricane Irma. A home on Kelsea Circle in the Village of Silver Lake began taking on water from a leaky roof which led to other damage to the home in the wake of the powerful hurricane which struck in September. In November, the homeowner found a flyer attached to his door, advertising roofing services.

He called David Hall’s Handy Service and received an $8,000 quote for which Hall wanted full payment before he began the work, according to an arrest warrant. The homeowner opted to give Hall two $4,000 checks during the month of November. Hall showed up on two days, stripping and repairing the room. He showed up twice more for about 20 minutes each time, and did little work. The work he performed, did not meet code standards.The homeowner made at least a dozen calls to Hall, which were not returned.

Hall is facing charges in another case involving a Villager.
