THOMASVILLE, N.C. — A Thomasville man is facing multiple charges after police say he stole fuel credit cards from a Charlotte-based company.
Jonathan Lee Williams, 27, of 18 Goforth Drive in Thomasville, was charged with four counts of financial transaction card theft and five counts of obtaining property by false pretense.
On Dec. 31, 2015, the Thomasville Police Department received a complaint from In Home Delivery Service, Inc., regarding fraudulent charges on their fuel cards.
An investigation revealed that an ex-employee, later identified as Williams, used four of the company’s fuel cards to make more than 250 transactions at a Thomasville convenience store.
Police said more than $53,000 worth of goods and merchandise were purchased with the cards between Aug. 23 and Dec. 5.
Williams was arrested Feb. 17 and was placed in the Davidson County Jail under a $30,000 secured bond. Williams has since posted bond.
His court date is set for Feb. 24 in Thomasville.
