Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies spoke to a man this week about a storm-shelter company that took back its product before completing installation.
Larry Studie said he made a down payment on a 12-person storm shelter and the company delivered it to his home to install. Rocky ground led the company to halt its attempts, and Studie was told they would need to get piece of heavy equipment to help with the installation. Studie later called the company for an update and was told he would have to pay the rental fee for the backhoe, along with an extra $100 per hour for labor.
Studie told deputies the contract he signed did not mention paying for the rental. The company later went to Studie’s property and took the storm shelter, he told deputies, while he was away.
