Redding, Calif.-- The Redding Police Department Neighborhood Police Unit identified 46-year-old Redding resident Troy Arleigh Holladay as someone providing bids to repair fire damage to Carr Fire victims.

Officers believe Holladay was not a licensed contractor and had provided a bid to an elderly woman. This bid to repair her damaged property did not have a contractor license number and required a $1,500 cash fee up front which was nearly half the total repair cost.

The NPU, Shasta County District Attorney's Office, and the Contractors State Licensing Board, conducted an investigation to determine if Holladay was a legitimate contractor.

August 20th Holladay was located and detained. Officers confirmed Holladay was not a licensed contractor and arrived at the elderly woman's home in possession of methamphetamine. 

Holladay was arrested for a felony violation of 7028.16 Business and Professions Code. This section forbids being an unlicensed contractor and offering or performing repairs to damaged structures as a result of a declared natural disaster.

He was additionally charged with possession of a controlled substance and booked into the Shasta County Jail.

Redding police say this incident is Holladay’s nineteenth arrest in Shasta County.
