A report from the Craven County Sheriff’s Office that a suspect had stolen and sold scrap steel to a recycling business in Vanceboro resulted in a Greenville man being handed more charges in jail, according to a press release from the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office.
On Jan.17, Brian Elliot Nollkamper, 27, of Mills Road, Greenville, incarcerated at the Craven County Detention Center, was served with warrants charging him with three counts of obtaining property by false pretense.
According to the sheriff’s office press release, Nollkamper had sold scrap metal to Kemp’s Recycling in Vanceboro.
“It was just recyclable steel, commonly referred to as shredder material,” said Maj. Kenneth Watson, spokesman for the sheriff’s office.
A Craven County magistrate ordered Nollkamper held at the county detention center under a $10,000 secured bond for the additional charges.
