Vice President of Business Arrested for Stealing $27,000


Lexington County Sheriff’s Department Detectives on Wednesday, April 3 arrested a 44-year-old Lexington man on charges that he diverted funds from a company, in which he served as Vice President, exceeding $27,000 for his personal use.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said detectives arrested Jerry Lee Cliborne, 44, of 121 Merion Drive, Lexington on a charge of Breach of Trust. An arrest warrant alleges that on six, separate occasions between November of 2012 and March of 2013, Cliborne deposited company checks totaling $27,477 to a private bank account which he controlled. Cliborne established the bank account with a business name similar to a vendor with which his company has regular business dealings, Metts said.

Cliborne was booked at the Lexington County Detention Center on Wednesday, April 3 where he is awaiting a bond hearing scheduled for the morning of Thursday, April 4. Metts asked anyone with any further information regarding criminal activity which Cliborne may have been a part of, to call the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department at (803)785-8230 or CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CrimeSC.
