Couple charged with arson now charged with fraud


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A Brunswick County couple charged with arson last month now face fraud charges after asking for public assistance.

On Oct. 30 Brunswick County Sheriff's deputies and the SBI charged Stephanie Woods Thomas, 37, and Jason Terry Rollins, 31, both of Supply, with second-degree arson and felony conspiracy to commit arson. The charges stem from a fire at a home on Clemmons Road in Bolivia Sept. 17.

Yesterday the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office Fire Investigation Task Force arrested Thomas for solicitation to obtain property by false pretense and obtaining property by false pretense. Officers charged Rollins with conspiracy to obtain property by false pretense.

According to an arrest warrant, Thomas tried to get furniture, clothing and cash from friends on Facebook by posting a plea for help, including a savings account number to deposit donations. Investigators say she also applied for help from Brunswick Family Assistance for the house fire that investigators say she is responsible for. They say Rollins conspired with her to get help from Brunswick Family Assistance.

Thomas is out of jail on a $10,000 bond. Rollins is still in jail under a $56,000 bond.

Just looking at her Facebook profile tells me she has got huge mental issues. Her photos are disgusting ! Shes squeezed in a bikini like a sausage with her leg jacked up showing her crotch in the bathroom mirror all while praising GOD on almost every post on her page ! A week before the fire she posted a bunch of photos of her "clean" house, like she was taking inventory. Odd. And what is up with those sharpie black eyebrows ?? LOLLL
