FLEETWOOD, Pa. -

A man accused of ripping off a homeowner in Fleetwood by posing as a contractor and not completing a job is heading to trial.

Jerry Allen waived his preliminary hearing Tuesday afternoon.

Allen was picked up in Palmer Twp., Northampton Co., near Easton, earlier this month.

Allen defrauded a man who paid him to build a sun room, police said.

The homeowner was also ripped off by Mark Kowalski on a different project, said police, who are still looking for him.
