Scam Artist Hits Storm Victims, Arrested

Thanks to a little investigative work by a Holland woman, one scam artist was caught. She was tipped off when he claimed he was with a company.

On Thursday, William Deeds showed up on Cindi Marolf's doorstep just outside of Holland. She says he wanted money up front to cut down her damaged trees, then claimed he would be back later. After Cindy figured out Deeds wasn't legit, she wrote his license plate number down and called the authorities. Deeds was found by sheriff's deputies five minutes later at Cindy's neighbor's house. Authorities say they pulled up as Deeds was trying to find his next victim. Deputies handcuffed him and took him in.
