Benjamin Smith (NSCB)
HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -
The Nevada State Contractors Board (NSCB) is warning about an unlicensed contractor who has been operating in both southern and northern Nevada.
Benjamin A. Smith has been added to NSCB's Top 10 Most Wanted list. Smith has used the business name KB Companies but also may operate using his formerly licensed business names, BSA Construction and Development and BSA Construction, LLC.
Smith is known for taking on commercial projects but may also do residential work.
Smith is described as 5'11", 185 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes. He has tattoos on the back of both arms. He currently has a warrant out for his arrest for contracting without a license.
"Unlicensed contractors who refuse to adhere to state laws are placing their customers at a huge risk and disadvantage should something go wrong during the project," said NSCB Executive Officer Margi Grein. "We encourage anyone who comes into contact with Mr. Smith to please contact the board or their local law enforcement immediately."
