Office Press Release

LINCOLNTON, N.C. – A Lincolnton woman has been charged with identity theft after a man’s cell phone was stolen.

On March 18, 2022 Timothy Steele filed a report with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office stating that his cell phone was stolen from a grocery cart while he was shopping at Food Lion.

He told officers that on March 14, 2022 he was contacted by Jessica Shull who stated she had his phone and wanted to return it. He went to her address in Lincolnton and picked up the cell phone.

A short time later when he attempted to make a purchase with his bank card, it was denied because there were insufficient funds. A check of his bank statements revealed that Shull had made purchases of more than $2,000. After confirming the charges, Detective J. Lail charged Jessica Ann Shull, 27, of Pine Street, Lincolnton, NC with obtaining property by false pretenses and financial identity theft. She was arrested on March 31, 2022 and taken before a Lincoln County magistrate. She was placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $12,500 secured bond.
