Douglas Lynn Carney, 55 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said he failed to pay for a fiberglass swimming pool to be transported from Texas to his home on Old Dalton Road.

Reports said that Carney had been contracted to pay $7,894 for the transportation and service back in March.

Authorities added that Carney never paid the bill despite numerous attempts to collect from the victim and police.

Carney is charged with felony theft of services and conversion of payments for real property improvements.
