State police say they have arrested a Watervliet man for defrauding someone looking to open a restaurant.

They say their investigation into Michael Osbourne started a year ago.

Police say they got a complaint from someone in Schenectady that Osbourne sold them kitchen equipment for a cafe they intended to open.

The victim bought more than $19,000 in equipment from Restaurant Solutions.

Police say the equipment delivered didn't work and some wasn't delivered at all.

Osbourne is charged with grand larceny and scheme to defraud.
