Date Reported: 12/02/2022

Incident: Theft by Swindle

Location: West Central MN

Suspect Information:

Derek Edward Fischer, Age 33

Case Details:

Derek Edward Fischer was charged in Douglas County District Court for Felony Theft by Swindle and Felony Theft by False Representation.  Fischer and his business partner are partners and owners of RockSolid Construction and Snow Removal LLC located in Douglas County and Otter Tail County.  Fischer was charged for an incident near Alexandria where he entered into a contract to build a house/shed and Fischer accepted $113,700 from the victim.  Fischer never started the building project and blocked contact with the alleged victim. 

Investigators with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office have also located another alleged victim in Crow Wing County and believe there could be others in the state.  They ask anyone with any information to contact their local law enforcement agency to work with Douglas County.  Fischer actively uses Facebook Market Place-type sites to solicit business. 

Bail was set for Fischer at $3000 bond or $300 cash.  Fischer posted bail and was released.

Officer: Sgt. Scot Umlauf, #243
