In May 2016, an Athens man was arrested for swindling an 84 year old man out of over 100K, ostensibly to use for cancer treatments. Now 39 year old Jerry DeWayne Long has been arrested again in Limestone County for swindling a 74 year old man out of almost 10K.

Long’s latest scam involved impersonating the LImestone County Sheriff and convincing his victim that he needed to leave money in a drop in order to help catch a local drug dealer. Long remains in the Limestone County Jail as of Monday afternoon.
