Cops say Troy man ripped off busi­ness

The Record (Troy, NY) - - LOCAL NEWS -

QUEENSBURY, N.Y. » A Troy man was re­cently charged with grand lar­ceny af­ter he al­legedly failed to per­form web­page up­grades to a busi­ness as promised.

The Warren County Sher­iff’s Of­fice said that Johnny R. Bryant, 43, was charged with fourth- de­gree grand lar­ceny, a felony.

Po­lice said Bryant is the owner of a busi­ness called Green Click In­no­va­tions. Po­lice said Bryant pur­ported to the vic­tim in this case that he would pro­vide tech ser­vices con­sist­ing of web­page up­grades to the vic­tim’s busi­ness web­page.

The vic­tim paid Bryant $1,852 for ser­vices, but po­lice said Bryant failed to per­form any web­page up­grades as promised and then re­fused to re­turn the money he was paid when re­quested to do so by the vic­tim.

Bryant was pro­cessed and re­leased to ap­pear in Queensbury Town Court later this month.

Deputies said they are aware that sev­eral other busi­nesses in the area have had in­ter­ac­tions with Bryant and ask that those busi­nesses con­tact the Sher­iff’s Of­fice at (518) 743-2500, or their lo­cal po­lice depart­ment, if they be­lieve they may be the vic­tim of a crime.

In­ves­ti­ga­tor Doug David and Pa­trol Of­fi­cer Dan Hab­shi were the in­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cers.
