Quality Construction owner charged

Greg Oberhofer, the owner of Quality Builders of Holmes Beach Inc., 5500-A Marina Drive, has been arrested on a charge of misappropriation of construction funds, a second-degree felony.

Oberhofer was arrested by Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputies Dec. 1 in connection with the remodeling of an Anna Maria home owned by Jill Morris. Oberhofer has entered a not guilty plea and faces a Jan. 9 arraignment on the charge.

Jill Morris said she and her husband gave a substantial amount of money to Oberhofer to remodel their home, but the project was never completed.

If convicted, Oberhofer faces a maximum 10-year sentence. He is currently free on $10,000 bond.

Morris said they saw no point in filing a civil suit because the company is no longer in business and it has no assets.
