(Richmond, IN)--Do you remember the names Heaven and Ben Johnson?  They’re the ones who purchased the former Crane Sanitarium building.  That’s the building at the corner of 22nd and East Main in Richmond just across from the Madonna of the Trail.  Heaven and Ben had passed themselves off as a Beverly Hills designer and Rolls Royce engineer and announced big plans to renovate the building.  Heaven later stole from Menard’s and was found to have committed fraud in several states in the South.  Over the weekend, they were back.  Local officials have indicated that they had been served with an order to repair the roof and porch or face legal action.  No significant work has been done on the building for at least the last year.
