CARY, N.C. — A Wayne County man is accused of swindling a Cary homeowner out of $1,700.

Billy Wayne Perry Jr., 41, of 3025 W. Highway 70 in Goldsboro, is facing one count of obtaining property by false pretense for pretending to be a licensed contractor, according to an arrest warrant.

Perry got a $1,700 cash advance from a Cary homeowner in October but never did the contractor work, the arrest warrant reads.

Perry was being held Wednesday in the Wake County jail under a $10,000 bond. He denied any wrongdoing and said he never received full payment for the job.
