Store owner charged with theft for undelivered furniture
Gary Evans -- Furniture Today, June 30, 2011
Scott Connell of Limestone Furniture Mart was charged after the local sheriff's department received 53 complaints of him taking $60,000 in payments for furniture he didn't order.
One customer said she received excuses over several months about why her furniture wasn't delivered and became suspicious when her daughter received a mailing inviting her to the store's going-out-of-business sale.
Connell remains in jail after the Limestone County Community Corrections Program placed a hold on him for possible violation of probation on a 2007 conviction for leaving the scene of an accident with injury.
