SALISBURY — A Salisbury man is charged with using a State Employees’ Credit Union debit card that he wasn’t authorized to use at several local businesses and ATMs, Rowan County officials said.

He used the card eight times for purchases and ATM withdrawals, officials said.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Eric Lamont Graham, 36, of the 2700 block of Goodnight Road with eight counts of felony obtaining property by false pretenses. Graham was issued a $1,000 secured bond and was released from the Rowan County Detention Center.

The debit card was used at Mystic Service Station, 1800 S. Main St., for a purchase of $3.69, officials said. The card was used at Rushco No. 16, 1518 E. Innes St., and an ATM withdrawal for $40 was made at 1811 E. Innes St.

Officials said he made a purchase of $17.52 at Jack’s Grocery, 3785 Bringle Ferry Road; an ATM withdrawal of $100 at 1811 E. Innes St.; and an ATM withdrawal of $102.95 at 312 Bendix Drive.

Graham is also accused of making an ATM withdrawal of $161.75 at 601 W. Jake Alexander Blvd. and a purchase of $10.79 at the Tobacco House, 2580 Airport Road.

Graham has been convicted of felony larceny, breaking and entering, possession of a firearm by a felon, felony possession of stolen goods, felony drug possession, felony conspiracy to commit armed robbery, and other offenses.

The connection to the person to whom the card belongs is not clear, authorities said.
