The New Orleans Police Department is asking for information on Steve John, suspect in a contractor fraud case.

"On October 16, 2019, John allegedly agreed to complete construction work on the victim’s home located in 3500 block of Rue Denise.  The victim paid John $9,500 in cash, however John did not perform any work on the home," said police.

"John reportedly committed the same crime against a homeowner in the 3700 block of Rue Nichole."

John is currently being held in Jefferson Parish jail on similar charges.

Police ask anyone with information to call Fourth District detectives at (504) 658-6040 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111 or toll free at (877) 903-7867 (STOP). Callers to Crimestoppers do not have to leave their names and may be eligible for a cash reward.
