The owner of a local cell phone repair company arrested last week for his questionable business practices is facing more trouble this week.

Woodstock Police arrested owner James White last Tuesday and charged him with racketeering, theft by taking and deposit account fraud.

He remains in jail without bond.

Meanwhile, police shared photographs with CBS46 showing hundreds of electronic items that were recovered from the Elite Techs store on Highway 92 in Woodstock, and at the Kennesaw store on Moon Station Road.

"It was anything from TV's, to laptops, cell phones," said Officer Scott Luther. "For somebody to get a no bond it's pretty serious."

Now CBS46 has learned that Kennesaw Police are bringing at least 15 additional theft-by-taking charges against White, after customers complained the company took their money and failed to repair their electronics.

"He had two different locations. The one up in Woodstock and the one here in Kennesaw so there could be hundreds, maybe even thousands of customers."

Now they want customers to come forward to claim their belongings.

"These customers have already been without their product for a long period of time. I know that they're aggravated, they're angry so we're just trying to get it back to them as quickly as possible," said Luther.

Customers can contact Kennesaw Police or Woodstock Police to retrieve their belongings depending on the location of the store they did business with.

They want to get those items back to you. If you're in Woodstock, call (770) 592-6000 (Ext. 1127) If you're in Kennesaw, call (770) 422-2505 or email Lt. Graydon at cgraydon@kennesaw-ga.govCopyright 2018 WGCL-TV (Meredith Corporation). All rights reserved.
