Las Vegas Marshals arrest wanted Prescott man for pretending to be a licensed contractor
Man faces 18 charges stemming from six incidents in Yavapai County
A former Prescott man was arrested by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department and Las Vegas Deputy City Marshals Tuesday, Jan. 8, for allegedly running a contracting business without the proper licensing.
Mark Allen Whittington, 60, dba End Result Remodeling, had an outstanding warrant issued on May 14 by the Prescott Justice Court for failure to appear after being summoned in April, according to the Arizona Registrar of Contractors (AZ ROC). His arrest was assisted by a tip regarding his potential whereabouts and took place shortly after 10 a.m. Tuesday in the office lobby of a Las Vegas hotel he was staying at, AZ ROC reported.
In total, Whittington faces 18 charges: one count of fraudulent schemes and artifices, a class 2 felony; one count of forgery, a class 4 felony; six counts of theft, a class 3 felony; one count of theft, a class 4 felony; seven counts of contracting without a license, a class 1 misdemeanor; and two counts of advertising without a license, a class 1 misdemeanor.
The charges stem from six separate incidents investigated by the AZ ROC since 2016. The cases were then submitted to the Yavapai County Attorney’s Office for charging.
Whittington was transported to the Clark County Detention Center, where he is currently being held non-bondable awaiting extradition to Yavapai county.
