Whose House Is This?

Anthony Bates of Henrico came home Tuesday evening to find the remodeling work on his home coming along nicely. Problem was…he never ordered any work done. An employee with GL Hughes Contracting out of Aylett said the crew got its streets mixed up because of GPS. Instead of working on Bates’ home on Almond Tree Drive, the crew should have been working at a home behind his, with the same address number but on Almond Berry Place. Bates said the workers apologized. Stay tuned.
