WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)-- Brian Causey, the son of former Sheriff and current Commissioner Candidate Sid Causey, is indicted on fraud charges. According to federal court documents, U.S. attorneys charged Brian Causey with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud between 1998 and 2002.
According to the indictment, Brian Causey and three accomplices were involved in a money making property scheme. Causey and his alleged accomplices were served with a forfeiture notice. He will have to return 250-thousand dollars he obtained during the alleged criminal activity.
Causey was not home when we went to his house to try and speak with him and he did not return our phone calls. Neighbors declined to talk on camera but said they were shocked by the indictment.
We also tried to talk with Brian's father and Sid Causey, but he did not return our phone calls and was not home when we went to his house for comment.
Brian Causey was charged in June and is scheduled to appear in federal court in Greenville Thursday.
