A Palm Harbor businessman was arrested Tuesday on charges he accepted money to refurbish pools, then failed to perform the work.

Douglas Anthony Crouch, 34, of 2865 Oak Creek Lane was charged with three counts of grand theft and one count of performing the work without a license, according to court papers. The case was investigated by the Pinellas County Department of Consumer Protection.

Crouch is owner of Paradise Pool & Spa, 3567 Lake Highland Drive. He is accused of taking about $14,000 from three Pinellas County homeowners to do the pool work, then not completing it, arrest reports state.

The homeowners were in Seminole, Largo and North Redington Beach.
