Call 11 For Action: Business takes laptop for repair, stops returning calls

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Matthew St. John thought he was supporting a local man trying to start up a new business, but after dozens of unreturned calls and emails he's starting to worry he may never see his laptop again.

"It's very frustrating; it's a very expensive laptop. I use it every day, my wife uses it every day," said St. John.

St. John says his laptop wasn't charging properly. Eager to get it fixed, he went online and found the Toledo Tech Squad on Facebook. It's a local company run out of the owner's house.

"I wanted to give a smaller guy a chance and you know, not go to a bigger company," said St. John.

So he dropped his laptop off. The man promised new parts and a repair. At first things seemed fine. He says the man kept in touch, up until Monday.

"The last thing he told me was that it was almost completed and that I could pick it up the next day and that's when I lost all contact," said St. John.

St. John says he's tried calling, Facebooking and even stopping by the house, but received no reply.

We tried to contact to contact the Toledo Tech Squad by phone, and even visited the home as well. We came up empty.

"I don't want to press charges, I don't want anything else to happen I just want my laptop returned and then everything will be fine,"

The Toledo Tech Squad Facebook page has been deleted.

St. John says he is just hoping nobody else has their stuff stolen. He says he did file a police report.

The man behind the company could face theft charges if the $1,300 dollar laptop isn't returned.

We'll keep you up to date on this story and let you know if or when we hear back.
