Bank fire, missing cash may be linked in North Carolina

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a report of embezzlement from the Enochville Dollar General Store, located directly beside Community One Bank. A $5,111 cash bank deposit went missing sometime between July 3 and July 6, and was reported Wednesday by Roger Rickard, loss prevention supervisor of Dollar General. The Community One Bank suffered damage from a fire to its deposit box July 6, but no records or cash were destroyed. Richard “Rick” Jurgenson, vice president and director of security for Community One Bank in Enochville, said the July 6 fire was surrounded by “unusual circumstances. ”Capt. John Sifford of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said the embezzlement is under investigation.
“One of their (Dollar General’s) deposits was not found at the bank,” Sifford said. “It was supposed to have been made, but was not in the drop box.”Sifford said the embezzlement and fire could be related, and the Sheriff’s Office is “certainly exploring the possibility.”
