SHALLOTTE, NC (WWAY) — A Shallotte Police officer has found himself on the wrong side of the law.
A SBI spokeswoman confirms that agents arrested Eric King yesterday for insurance fraud and obtaining property by false pretense. Agents also arrested King’s girlfriend Leah Cunningham on the same charges.
King and Cunningham were booked at the Brunswick County Jail and placed under $10,000 bond.
We tried to reach Shallotte Police Chief Rodney Gause for comment, but he was out of the meeting for the rest of the afternoon.
