LINCOLN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -
An Asheboro man was arrested after he attempted to scam a Lincoln County family by falsely claiming he would put gravel on their driveway, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.
On Friday, December 21, the man, later identified as Tommy Mack Small, Jr., 32, approached the family at their home on Alf Hoover Road in Vale and told them he worked for the state, and had a number of extra truckloads of gravel left over from a job site nearby.
He told the family he would put the gravel on their driveway for $120, the report states.
They agreed and paid Small with money from a cabinet in the home. The victim told deputies Small saw where they got the money, and asked everyone to go outside and move their vehicles.
When they did, he went inside and took another $100. He then came out of the home and quickly left the scene, saying he needed to leave and get a piece of equipment. The family became suspicious and called 911, deputies said.
A detective that was in the area stopped Small in his vehicle nearby. The victim went to the scene of the traffic stop and identified the truck and Small.
The money was returned to the family, and Small was arrested and charged with felony obtaining property by false pretense and misdemeanor larceny. He was released on a $2,500 secured bond after being processed at the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center.
