SCSO jailers arrested in check fraud scheme

 

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - FOX13 has learned that a former Shelby County Corrections deputy and five current Shelby County Corrections deputies were arrested Friday in a check kiting scheme.

The Shelby County Sheriff's Office initiated the investigation. Arrest warrants were obtained on the six individuals, including one who had been previously terminated.

Those arrested include:

  • Shaparis Rice
  • Travis Deshun Logwood (previously terminated)
  • Randy Jones
  • Jacqueline Holmes
  • Jameshia Trenell
  • Alexis McNeil

The charges range from theft of property $1,000 to $10,000.

Detectives with the sheriff’s office found out about the check kiting scheme while they were investigating another crime. The suspects are accused of stealing nearly $7,000 dollars from the Shelby County Credit Union.

One of the deputies would deposit money into the other deputies' accounts at the credit union. They would make a withdrawal, and the deputy who deposited the money would then close the account.

According to the affidavit, the scheme began in the summer of 2017 in late July, and it happened at least five times.

All five Shelby County Corrections deputies have been suspended without pay pending the outcome of the investigation.
