An arrest warrant has been issued for a Rock Island man sought on one count of felony home repair fraud.

William Paul Fischer, 49, of 2627 15th Ave., Rock Island, is expected to be held on a $10,000 bond upon his arrest.

Court records allege that on April 30, 2012, Mr. Fischer violated a written $5,862 contract in which he agreed to complete repairs to a residence in the 4700 block of 5th St. A, East Moline.

Mr. Fischer "knowingly misrepresented the completion date of said repair and promised performance which he did not intend to perform," charges allege. East Moline police could not be reached for comment Monday.
