Investigators say Kevin Todd falsely represented himself as the Treasurer of the Abbotts Precinct Community Property Board and sold the parcel of land to another community member.

Deputies in a southeastern North Carolina community say a man sold a piece of property that wasn’t his, without the permission of the legal owner.

Board Members of the Abbotts Precinct Community Property, Inc. reported in September that their organization owned a parcel of land that had been fraudulently deeded to another member of their community.

The Bladen County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division found Kevin Heath Todd had falsely represented himself as the Treasurer of the Abbotts Precinct Community Property Board and sold the parcel of land to another community member.

Investigators say Todd also opened an account at a local financial institution where he deposited the money from the sale.

Todd, 47, of Bladenboro was charged with forgery of deeds/wills, obtaining property by false pretense and common law forgery.

He is jailed on a $25,000 unsecured bond.

The investigation is ongoing and deputies say additional arrests will be made.
