PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

The owner of a Paducah furniture store has been arrested after a six-month investigation into complaints made by numerous citizens.

Since September 2015, detectives with the Paducah Police Department have been gathering information and interviewing numerous people, including employees of Fleming Furniture and Danny Kelley, 68, of Paducah.

Meetings this week led to warrants being obtained Friday morning for Kelley.

The majority of charges are related to individuals not receiving furniture they paid for.

The theft by deception charge stems from a cold check written for merchandise at a local tire business and the theft of services charge is related to avoiding payment for heating and air conditioning services performed at Fleming Furniture.

Anyone having paid for furniture which was not received should contact the McCracken County Attorney’s office.

Kelley was charged with seven counts of theft by failure to make required disposition of property over $500, one count of theft by failure to make required disposition of property over $10,000, one count of theft of services over $500 and one count of theft by deception over $500.

He was also served two summonses for theft by failure to make required disposition of property under $500.

Kelley was booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.
