Putnam Woman Files Complaint Against Neighbor

A Putnam County woman, whose neighbor had agreed to install a fuel pump on her truck, now claims that the neighbor instead drove the vehicle to Sparta, attempted to get cash for the fuel pump she had purchased, and still tried to collect thirty dollars in labor for work she says he never performed. It reportedly happened over the weekend at a home on Shannon Road. Authorities say because the neighbor was given permission to work on the truck, he probably cannot be charged with theft of property, but told the victim that she could try to get a criminal summons for joyriding.
