SUMTER, SC (WIS) - We recently told you about 52-year-old Jimmie Lee Wells of Sumter.

In May of 2006, deputies say Wells accepted $1,400 from a Bishopville woman to do some work on her house. Deputies say he cashed the check but never showed up.

"He seemed to be honest, and I thought he was," said Rosa Ford.

After our story aired, Lee County authorities say they got several tips about where Wells might be. And Friday morning, he turned himself in.
