LAWMEN: More Victims Finger "Career Criminal"

More victims have come forward against a man that Pitt County deputies say is a career criminal who preys on people through his construction company.

Anthony Cannon of Greenville is charged with seven more felony counts and three more misdemeanor charges involving fraud and obtaining money.

Deputies say the new victims came forward after news stories first aired in early April on his arrest.

In September 2010 the Pitt County Sheriff's Office began investigating Cannon for defrauding people and companies. The investigation revealed a history of fraud, usually carried out through his self-employed construction business.

In the new cases lawmen say Cannon would purchase items with worthless checks, promised construction work that was never completed and rented construction equipment with the victim's money and never returned the equipment.

If anyone suspects that they may have been a victim of Cannon, they should call the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office at 252-902-2773.
