A Lake Charles contractor was charged last week with fraud involving a St. Landry Parish construction project.

According to records, Charles Wayne Reeves, 48, was arrested at about noon on Aug. 13 by Lake Charles police at his 2875 Derek Drive office.

A warrant charged Reeves with misapplication of payments, according to Krotz Springs police.

According to booking information at Calcasieu Correc–tional Center, Reeves was ordered held for extradition to St. Landry Parish.

The amount involved in the contract fraud is $447,000, according to the arrest warrant.

The incident is reportedly related to the construction of a Dollar General store in Krotz Springs.

Reeves owns Reeves Development, which has developed subdivisions in Lake Charles and Vinton and built retail stores such as O’Reilly Auto Parts and Dollar General.

Reeves Development’s website describes the company as a premier developer for the Dollar General Corp., “providing prototype construction for a number of Dollar Generals in Louisiana, Texas, Colorado and Indiana.”
