Oops! Contractor takes the roof off wrong house

BRANDON — Brandon police received an unusual call on Thursday, April 21 from a family member on Deer Run Road reporting that someone had removed the roof from her elderly parent’s home, also on Deer Run Road. An officer investigated the scene and, after making a few calls, discovered that a roofing contractor had gone to the wrong house and removed almost three quarters of the homeowner’s roof by mistake. 

Since the issue was civil and not criminal in nature, the complainant was advised of the mistake and was given her options as to what she could do to resolve the damage done.
