Mount Prospect police arrested Misha Paer, 43, at his home in the 1500 block of Sander Court, Wheeling, about 10:22 a.m. Thursday, October 15

Paer was charged with felony aggravated home repair fraud after a Mount Prospect resident reported he signed a contract on May 20 with Paer's company, All Affordable Garage Doors.
