Members of the Henderson Police Department are asking for the public’s assistance in locating Michael Louis Lackey, 36, of 1015 Lands End Court North Augusta, South Carolina. Mr. Lackey is wanted on one count of common law robbery and one count of obtaining property by false pretenses.
Mr. Lackey allegedly on May 22, 2012 claimed to be the owner of a roofing company, M and L Roofing, and came to victim’s residence to obtain money for supplies. Mr. Lackey claimed to have over charged the elderly female victim and would refund her money, but needed a new check written before he could refund her. When the victim, an 80 year-old female, refused to write an additional check, Mr. Lackey allegedly aggressively shouted at the victim and took her walker in a threatening manner. The victim was forced to write a check and Mr. Lackey left the residence. Mr. Lackey later cashed the check at an area bank.
The victim’s identity has been withheld for her protection.
If anyone should have information on Mr. Lackey’s whereabouts they are encouraged to contact the Henderson Police Department at 252-438-4141 or Crime Stoppers at 252-492-1925. Callers may remain anonymous. Crime Stoppers may offer a reward up to $2,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
