William Witter, 50, of Penn Township, was arraigned Tuesday on charges of home improvement fraud, theft by deception and forgery after police allege he accepted money to renovate a historic building in West Pennsboro Township but failed to complete the work in a reasonable time frame, and also gave deceptive reasoning to the building’s owner, including the use of a nonexistent contractor’s number.

Pennsylvania State Police allege that Witter, who also goes by Mike, was hired in October 2019 by the owner of Heishman’s Mill, a circa-1805 structure along the Conodoguinet Creek, to renovate the structure.
