HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - We're still on the case of the plumber, and we're getting results.

Tommy Mayo was on the Madison County Court docket Wednesday for theft by deception charges.  He had a felony hearing exam scheduled at 8:30 a.m.  WHNT News 19 was there, too, to see if he showed up.

He did.  Our cameras were rolling as Mayo entered the Madison County Courthouse and breezed through the metal detectors.  His court appearance was to request a court-appointed attorney. 

The State of Alabama is also investigating Mayo.  The Plumbers and Gas Fitters Examining Board has tallied up six additional cases against Mayo.

Madison County Sheriff's deputies also served him two new warrants.  One includes Rhonda Norman's case.

Mayo made a mess of her place, leaving her wallet dried up along with her kitchen sink.

Thankfully, another local plumber made things right.

Mayo exited the court room Wednesday, and was taken to jail.  He bonded out later in the day.  WHNT News 19 will continue to track his case for new developments.

Before you hire someone to do work at your home, remember to check online with the Alabama Plumbers & Gas Fitters Examining Board to see if a plumber is licensed.
