A 40-year-old man is accused of walking out on a friend and taking her money with him.
San Antonio police arrested Jose Omar Garcia Wednesday on a theft charge related to the incident which happened in January of this year, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
The affidavit stated that a 53-year-old woman told police she paid Garcia, whom she has known for 12 years, to put down wood flooring in her home.
She said although she gave him more than $1,700, Garcia did not do any work or by any materials, the affidavit stated.
The woman finally went to police in May after trying for months to contact Garcia and even sending him a demand letter, the affidavit stated. A warrant was issued for his arrest in August.
