Sheriff Darren Campbell stated: The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint that a large number of stolen checks were being cashed at local businesses throughout Iredell County. The report was assigned to Sgt. D. R. Getz of the Economic Crime Unit. During his investigation, Sgt. Getz learned that Jason Adam Fox and his girlfriend, Shannon Nicole Beebe had stolen these checks from a family member. Fox and Beebe were working together to use these stolen checks to obtain cash and merchandise. The checks were written over the amount of the merchandise so they could receive cash back for the difference.

As a result of the investigation, detectives obtained warrants for Jason Fox for one count of Misdemeanor Larceny and 47 counts of Obtaining Property by False Pretenses, and also obtained warrants for Shannon Beebe for 47 counts of Obtaining Property by False Pretenses. Fox was arrested on May 23, 2015 and placed under a $125,000 bond. Beebe was arrested on June 15, 2015 and placed under a 20,000 bond. Both are being held in the Iredell County Detention Center.
