LINCOLN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

A Denver man has been arrested and charged with six felony counts of obtaining property by false pretenses, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.

Jason Eric Richardson, 29, of Mint Hill, was charged on Friday, and turned himself in Monday at the Lincoln County Magistrate's Office, officials said.

Richardson, a former employee of Walgreen's on Highway 73 in Denver, promised to provide goods for co-workers for an advance payment, but the items were never delivered.

In one case, deputies said Richardson told a co-worker that he could provide 30 NBA jerseys with 15 of the jerseys autographed by NBA players and 15 autographed basketballs for a total of $2,800.

The items were to be used for an American Cancer Society fundraiser, but deputies say they were never received.

The other charges stem from the failure to deliver on UNC/Duke basketball tickets, tickets to the Master's in Augusta, Georgia, tickets to a New Kids on the Block concert, and repair a rear window in a Jeep Liberty, the report states.

Richardson received $685 in advance for the items.

The incidents occurred between January 1, and March 1, 2013.

Richardson was taken to the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center and placed under a $30,000 secured bond.
