SULLIVAN COUNTY, TN (WJHL) - Sullivan County Sheriff's Office deputies are searching for a Johnson City man accused of theft, after he reportedly failed to complete fence work he was paid in advance to do.
According to a SCSO news release, a woman called authorities on Dec. 11 to report that she had the owner of Veteran's Fence Company, Joey Miller,35, of Lamont Street, come to her home to put a fence on her property, but said he failed to complete the work.
She reportedly told deputies that she gave Miller $600, with the understanding that the work would be completed the next business day.
When the work was not finished, the woman called to demand a refund and Miller told her he would refund the money. She told deputies that he never sent her money.
According to the release, Miller has not refunded the woman's money and has still not completed the fence work.
Miller has been charged with theft over $500 and a warrant was issued for his arrest. 
According to the release, authorities have not been able to locate Miller.
Anyone with information on Miller's whereabouts are asked to call the sheriff's office at 279-7500 ext. 222 or visit www.scsotn.com to submit a tip anonymously.
