NASHVILLE – An investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in the indictment and arrest of two Hendersonville business owners charged with unlawful contracting and impersonating a licensed professional.
At the request of 18th District Attorney General Ray Whitley, on March 28th, TBI Agents began investigating the owners of JK Custom Renovations on allegations that they were engaged in contracting work they were not licensed to perform. The investigation revealed that in January, Kimberly Nutting and Justin Warren submitted a bid to an insurance company, estimating repair work at approximately $32,000. Agents developed information that the pair required 100-percent payment from clients once the insurance company released a check for the claim. The investigation showed that when asked to produce a license and proof of insurance, the owners of JK Custom Renovations could not provide proof. Agents learned that neither Nutting nor Warren was a licensed contractor authorized to conduct this type of business.
On August 8th, the Sumner County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Kimberly Nutting (DOB 5/03/1971) and Justin Warren (DOB 12/28/1976) each with one count of Impersonation of a Licensed Professional, Unlawful Contracting, and Attempted Theft of Property. Nutting and Warren were arrested this morning by TBI Agents, and each was booked into the Sumner County Jail on a $7,500 bond.
