Last week WRGC brought you the story of Jeremy Ryan Clark, 30, of Canton, who was arrested on November 2nd, and charged with felony obtaining property under false pretense. Haywood County Deputies arrested Clark without incident at his home, after receiving a complaint from a 93-year-old-man, who stated he gave Clark $200 after Clark claimed that he had a sick child and did not have the money to fill the child’s prescription. Arrest warrants report that Clark’s child was not sick at the time, nor was the child in his custody. After seeing media coverage of the story, several other victims have reported similar crimes committed by Clark. All alleged incidents have been reported to have taken place during the same week, and after investigations, detectives have served Clark with three additional warrants for felonious obtaining property under false presence. Clark remains in custody in the Haywood County Detention Center under a secured bond, and has a scheduled court appearance for November 20th. If you think you may have been a victim, or have similar crime to report in this case, you are asked to call the Haywood County Sheriff’s Office at 828-452-6666.
