The Springfield Police Department began this investigation into contractor fraud in February.

They said Jennifer Spann Schezinger was employed by a flooring business and would encourage potential victims to use Michael Beau Smith as a contractor. Schezinger also had an out of state warrant for theft by deception and was not a licensed contractor, police said.

The investigation is ongoing and more charges are possible.
