CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — We have the very latest information on some Troubleshooters stories we've reported during this pandemic.
- Let's begin with Micky Leal, who has been waiting for a refund from contractor Ismael Gonzales since May 29.
He was supposed to build a concrete walkway between her house and her mother's house.
Gonzales told us he'd give her a refund because he couldn't buy concrete to do just "a little bitty job like that."
We have reached out to Gonzales, but he has not returned our calls.
- Art Lopez tells us the tenant at his rental house on Shely Street has made the two payments she told us she would, to get caught up.
Lopez was very patient with her since she had lost her job due to the pandemic.
But she's working again and paying her rent, and Lopez is fine with that.
- Ryant Connelly is still in the Nueces County Jail without bond.
He's waiting on a hearing for a motion to revoke his probation due to alleged probation violations.
He's been on probation since 2014 following an accident he was involved in back in 2013.
- Mrs. B, Belma Lintz, is still waiting for contractor Rey Puebla to keep his word and repair her patio.
She's already paid him $1,800.
Puebla told us more than once, that he would get it done, but Mrs. B says it is not done.
We have reached out to Puebla, but he has not returned our calls.
- And Sharon Emerson, executive director of Corpus Christi's International Seamen's Center, says she filed a complaint with the Attorney General's Fraud Division against contractor Thomas Hamilton.
She paid him $2,000 to repair part of the floor behind the bar, but then asked him to refund the money.
He has not, nor has the work been done.
He told us he wants to be compensated for his time and material he bought.
Emerson intends to file a police report as well.
