Press Release

The Lee County Sheriff’s Department has arrested and charged Latasha Jones, 38 years old, with Exploitation of a Vulnerable Adult. On October 18, 2018, Jones manufactured a document to appear to be a check on the Lee County Sheriff’s Department Inmate Commissary Account. Jones had received checks from The Lee County Inmate Commissary Account from previous arrest and was able to duplicate a document that appeared to be factual. Once the false document was created, she presented it to an elderly adult for them to cash, it in which they did. The elderly adult took the check to a bank where she was advised it was identified as a false document.
