Man wanted for scamming elderly person

WANTED-- Roger Lee Lemons, Jr.

(Updated July 29, 4:55 p.m.)      

Sheriff's officers seeking paving scam artist

On Tuesday, July 21, 2015, investigators from the Alexander County Sheriff’s Office learned of a scam on Friendship Church Road in Taylorsville, according to Sheriff Chris Bowman.
A man, who identified himself as Roger Lemons, made an agreement with a home owner to pave his driveway with asphalt for $3,500. Lemons received a check in the amount of $3,500 from the homeowner for the work that was to be completed. 
Lemons spread approximately $300 of crusher run gravel on the drive, but no asphalt was ever put down, Bowman said.
Photos of Lemons were obtained from a local bank in Taylorsville where Lemons and an unidentified white male cashed the check. 
It was later learned from the bank that Lemons’ full name is Roger Lee Lemons, Jr., 42 years old. Lemons has a Tennessee driver’s license and an ID card with an address in Charlotte, NC.
Lemons was charged with one count of exploitation of the elderly and one count of obtaining property by false pretenses. Lemons is entered nationwide as a wanted person and this case continues to be investigated.
