Police say an Oakville, Ont., man is facing multiple charges in an alleged kitchen renovation fraud.

Halton regional police say the 42-year-old man was charged with 12 counts of fraud over $5,000 following an investigation spanning several months.

It’s alleged the man is the principal behind Oakville Kitchen Designers, a renovation business.

It is alleged that in 2016 and 2017 he was contracted by 11 clients for kitchen renovations and significant deposits were collected from the clients, but the specified renovations were substantially not completed.

Investigators say several of the complainants were left with a partially renovated area, or renovations that had cabinets and sinks removed, at which point the work ceased.

The 12th count of fraud deals with a transaction with a bank and police say the total losses amount to approximately $400,000.
