[ARCHIVED] Convicted felon charged after a search on Western Iredell County.


Sheriff Darren Campbell stated:  On Saturday, November 24, 2018 at approximately 10:07 am Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to 435 East Lackey Farm Road in Stony Point, in reference to a breaking and entering, and larceny of a firearm from a motor vehicle.

Shortly before deputies arrived at the location, the suspect Gene Lee Greer Jr., took off running through a nearby field with the stolen firearm, which it was later learned, was loaded. A perimeter was established in the area by deputies. A canine unit and the sheriff’s office drone was dispatched to the scene in an attempt to locate the armed suspect.

While searching the area deputies were able to use information gathered to secure warrants on Gene Lee Greer Jr. A short time later, the suspect was taken into custody in Alexander County.

Deputies transported Greer the Iredell County Detention Center where he was served with the following arrest warrants: Felony Larceny of a Firearm, Felony Breaking and Entering a Motor Vehicle, and Felony Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.

 Magistrate T. Thompson issued Greer a 200,000.00 dollars secure bond on these charges.

Sheriff Campbell also said, “As you can see from this man’s considerable criminal history, he is one we and the community are very familiar with. People who have records like this continue to be a drain on community resources”.
