Blotter: China Grove man previously charged with embezzlement faces more felony charges

A China Grove man previously charged in Mecklenburg for embezzlement faces more felony charges, warrants say.

Rowan County authorities served arrest warrants on Clint Allan Fontenot, 25, of Pethel Road, for six counts of obtaining property by false pretenses.

In August, Fontenot was charged in Mecklenburg County with embezzlement. He was an employee with Roby Electric and was accused of taking $16,717.85 worth of supply and electric equipment from mid-June to early July, according to warrants.

He was charged in Rowan County after taking a coin collection worth more than $5,000 along with a rifle, two shotguns and a revolver from neighbors. He is also accused of taking and later pawning stolen jewelry.

In 2009, Fontenot was convicted of larceny, consuming alcoholic beverage under 21 and financial card fraud, all of which are misdemeanors.

He was issued a $1,500 secured bond and Rowan officials said he was released the same day after paying the bond.
