Windsor Police charge pool contractor with fraud

The Windsor Police Service has charged the owner of a pool installation company with fraud.

In September 2023, members of the Windsor Police Service’s Amherstburg Criminal Investigations Unit launched an investigation into Western Ontario Fiberglass Pools. Through the investigation, officers learned that the company’s owner accepted a $30,000 pool installation deposit in June 2023. However, the company never began work and did not return the deposit when requested.

On December 28, 2023, officers arrested and charged Thomas Dowling, 63, of Blenheim, with one count of fraud over $5,000.

Earlier this year, Dowling was charged with three counts of fraud over $5,000 for similar acts​​. Those charges stemmed from Dowling’s actions as owner/operator of KTPC Pools and Concrete Resurfacing Inc.
