Ferrell Facing Even More Charges

A Bryan man who was already accused of scam­ming com­pa­nies out of more than $250,000, was indicted Tues­day on an addi­tional charge of grand theft, which is a felony.

The Williams County Pros­e­cu­tor, in a press release Tues­day, said that 37 year old Gene Fer­rell is accused of bro­ker­ing sales involv­ing pal­lets and then skip­ping out on the pay­ment.

It’s not Ferrell’s first brush with the law. He was indicted back in Novem­ber on one count of engag­ing in a pat­tern of cor­rupt activ­ity, which is also a felony, one count of money laun­der­ing, a third-degree felony, 15 counts of fourth-degree felony grand theft, 14 counts of fifth-degree felony theft and a first-degree mis­de­meanor count of petty theft.

The Bryan Times reports that Fer­rell also refused to pay more than $5,000 to Van Order Pal­let Com­pany in Swan­ton and in all, Fer­rell is accused of scam­ming 30 dif­fer­ent com­pa­nies in the county between April 2009 and Decem­ber 2011.

Fer­rell also has past con­vic­tions for pass­ing bad checks, vio­lat­ing the terms of his com­mu­nity con­trol, cocaine pos­ses­sion and attempted insur­ance fraud.
