Lincoln County Sheriff's
Office Press Release

LINCOLNTON – On April 19, 2020 Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched a domestic violence call that was on going in a vehicle traveling Highway 27 West near Rock Dam Road.

One officer was stationary at Rock Dam Road and pulled behind the vehicle as it traveled east on Highway 27 West. Blue lights and siren were activated and the vehicle was stopped in the parking lot of Lincoln Charter School. Deputies told the occupants, a male and female and a young child, he stopped them because of an open line on a cell phone in the vehicle and communication center telecommunicators could hear yelling and sceaming.

Both occupants told officers they had gotten into an argument after attending a party earlier that night. A check of the driver’s license for Bruce Arthur Godfrey, 40, of North Grove Street, Lincolnton, NC revealed he was wanted in Virginia on outstanding warrants. Godfrey is charged in Henrico County, Virginia with three counts of embezzlement and two count of construction fraud.

Godfrey was taken before a Lincoln County magistrate and placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center where he is being held without bond. Virginia is seeking full extradition.
