A business transaction that was instigated years ago between the city and a North Little Rock man has resulted in a theft charge.
In 2013, Powershine Janitorial Services of North Little Rock entered into a contract with the City of Arkadelphia. The city would eventually cancel the deal with Powershine.
In September 2015, the company’s owner/operator, Reginald Couch, reportedly claimed that his business had performed services that were never paid and demanded reimbursement.
The company, which deals primarily in cleaning buildings, had been contracted for mowing services.
Couch further denied receiving three different checks for three separate invoices that had been mailed to him 2013. To compensate, a new, single check was issued in the amount of $5,392.20 to cover all of the three previous amounts.
However, the three supposedly missing checks, plus the replacement check, were all deposited into Powershine Janitorial Services’ Regions Bank Account in one transaction in April. The four checks all were marked “Deposit Only” and bore no signature.
The defendant was confirmed to be the primary holder of the account by way of subpoenaed bank records.
Couch has been charged with theft of property greater than $5,000 but less than $25,000. He could face between three to 10 years in prison if convicted.
