After dozens of complaints, Ottawa police fraud investigators have charged two roofers with pocketing money but leaving dozens of roofing jobs unfinished.


The woman and man are the owner and an employee of Ottawa Permanent Roofing, police said.


Hanan El Badry, 27, of Ottawa and Hugh Arnold, 61, of Kelowna, are charged with 45 counts of fraud over $5,000.


El Badry is the owner. Police said Arnold also sometimes used the name Anthony El Badry. He was arrested by the RCMP in Kelowna and is now in custody in Ottawa.


Police said they have received more than 49 complaints, and there may be more unhappy customers.


Anyone with information is asked to contact the fraud unit at (613) 236-1222, extension 5292 or to call Crime Stoppers at (613) 233-8477 (TIPS) or toll-free at 1-800-222-8477.
