NJ.com reports the investigation revealed Wood sub-contracted with a general contractor to perform roof repair work on a Monmouth Beach property in late-January 2013 as the principal of Reliable Roofing and Siding.
Wood will face Forgery, Uttering a Forged Instrument, Failure to Register with the state Division of Consumer Affairs, and Failure to Provide a Written Contract charges.
He was released pending a future court date after posting $10,000 bail.
