BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has ordered the owner of a Minnesota construction company who allegedly failed to get the required licenses to stop doing business.
The cease-and-desist order is against Patrick J. Delare, of Becker, Minn., and PJD Construction. A phone number for PJD Construction or Delare could not immediately be found.
Stenehjem says his consumer protection division initiated an investigation after receiving complaints that Delare had taken advance deposits of more than $120,000 to build pole barns but failed to complete them.
Stenehjem says Delare also does not have the required licenses to do business in North Dakota.
