Investigators say Jarrard operated a business called Best Built Pole Barns and used online advertisements to attract customers. Clients hired him to build barns and perform other construction work. They paid him deposits ranging from $2,700 to $21,600, according to an affidavit written by a Natrona County sheriff's investigator. Sometimes, he'd deliver materials or start construction. About half the time, customers said they received nothing at all.
Jarrard has been in trouble with the law before. He, and companies he's been associated with, have also been the subject of multiple lawsuits, court records show.
During that first meeting, he cautioned them about other, unscrupulous builders, Heald recalled.
Jarrard ultimately pleaded guilty to a single count of check fraud. In exchange for his plea, prosecutors dismissed three other charges against him and agreed to a sentence of probation. He pleaded under a special provision that allowed him to avoid a felony conviction if he completed probation. Court records show he did.
Prosecutors charged him with check fraud in 2006 after several people reported receiving bad checks from his company, Roadway Enterprises. An employee who handled the company's payroll told a detective she was stuck with more than $1,000 in returned check fees after her own paycheck bounced, according to a police affidavit.
In one instance cited in the affidavit, a bank officer claimed Jarrard wrote a $3,200 check to himself at a time when his account had a negative balance of close to $2,200.
The Healds found Jarrard through a Facebook advertisement, and within days, he visited their property. They Nike Air Max Thea Size 3

The alleged victims are spread across Wyoming.
In March, prosecutors charged Jarrard with larceny, check fraud and obtaining goods by false pretenses. Each charge carries a penalty of 10 years behind bars.
A preliminary hearing is set for Tuesday to determine whether Jarrard should stand trial in Natrona County District Court. He remains free on a $10,000 bond, court records show.
"He had an answer for every question you had for him," she said. "For anything."
"As soon as they cut the check, he vanished from the Earth," she said.
Prosecutors have also charged Jarrard with check fraud. They suspect he used his company's account to write checks to himself, without having the funds to cover the transactions. In the time it took for the checks to clear, he allegedly made multiple cash withdrawals.
"I hope this was an anomaly and an event that was a hiccup, and that you and I will never meet in this setting again," the judge Nike Thea Beige Leather told him.

The building materials never arrived. Instead, the Healds got excuses. Jarrard, they said, blamed his suppliers, the wet weather and even his own personal problems.
At Jarrard's sentencing, a judge warned him about running afoul of the law again, according to a transcript of the proceeding.
Jarrard is not licensed in Natrona County as a contractor, according to the county Building Department. Contractors must be licensed in order to build pole barns.
It's been a year since she and her husband hired Greg Jarrard to build a garage near their home in Rozet, a rural community in northeast Wyoming. The land remains bare.
Jarrard didn't complete any of the projects, investigators say. All 20 customers said he still owed them money.

Eventually, the couple asked Jarrard to return their money. They've never been repaid, Heald said.
"I wonder if he realized how it really impacts people and their lives," she said. They spoke with 20 customers, including the Healds, who said they hired him to perform construction work. He failed to complete a single project, while collecting more than $150,000 from his clients, according to court documents filed by prosecutors. His customers allegedly received about $34,000 worth of work and materials.
discussed options for the garage and he offered them what seemed like a good deal.
The couple signed the final contract in May 2011. They agreed to pay Jarrard $16,500 for the garage, with $7,500 up front. It took a few weeks to secure the down payment. Jarrard kept pushing for the deposit and even drove to their bank in Sheridan to collect the check, Heald said.
Amy Heald doesn't expect to ever get her money back.
