BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a Baton Rouge home builder accused of failing to pay more than 30 subcontractors more than $528,000 on four home building projects in 2012.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/VYz94U ) Quinn Martin, was booked Tuesday on 54 counts of misapplication of payments by a contractor and four counts of felony theft.

The arrest warrant says Martin's Baton Rouge-based company, QMI Custom Homes, entered into homebuilding contracts, worth a total of $1.8 million, with four different parties in 2012.

The five victims on those four projects received liens and payment demand notices from 32 of Martin's subcontractors for a combined $528,000 the subcontractors were owed.

It was unclear whether Martin has an attorney.
