A felony arrest warrant was issued for a Roland man charged with fraud.
Bond for Phillip Leverette, 48, was set at $10,000.
On Nov 11, 2019, Montea Wight of Muldrow contacted Leverette and his associates, doing business as K&P Steel Erectors, to erect some mini-storage buildings in Muldrow. Wight paid Leverette with two checks totaling $9,000 for the purchase of concrete and other building materials. Leverette cashed the checks but never returned to do the work, according to court documents.
On March 13, 2020, Wight filed a lawsuit for $10,000 against Leverette and K&P Steel Erectors. On Sept. 8, 2020, a court order indicated that Leverette was not found to be served, forcing the case to be dropped.
Documents state that Leverette has never brought any goods to the Muldrow work site, nor has he made any contact with Wight. Multiple efforts by law enforcement to locate Leverette have failed.
Since the Wight case, other people have come forward with similar stories about being defrauded by Leverette.
