The Delaware Attorney General's Office says two men have been arrested on charges stemming from an alleged home construction fraud scheme. Department of Justice spokesman Jason Miller says Andrew Jones and Jason James operated a company named Bavari Inc., which held contracts to build new homes in Sussex and Kent counties. The company allegedly stole more than $470,000 from homeowners and sub-contractors between 2003 and 2007.

Jones and James were indicted by a New Castle County grand jury on Wednesday.

Jones is charged with racketeering, conspiracy, theft and fraud charges. James is charged with theft and new home construction fraud.
