Fraud warning about money orders

A fairly common fraud scheme involving money orders is making the rounds, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department.

A woman in the 2400 block of I Road on Thursday reported receiving an $850 money order for property she had advertised in a newspaper. Police told the woman the money order was fake. Police encourage sellers to verify payment is legitimate before selling items.

According to the Grand Junction Police Department:

Gregory Jacob Johnston, 29, 261 Terrance Drive, was arrested in the 2900 block of North Avenue on Thursday on suspicion of felony criminal mischief.

According to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department:

Jackey Earl Futrell, 24, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of four counts of failing to register as a sex offender. According to an arrest affidavit, Futrell had registered his home address on 21 Road but was living at the Timbers Motel, 1810 North Ave.

Edward Scott Henderson, 19, 607 Tony Alley in Delta, was booked into Mesa County Jail on Thursday on suspicion of escape and a parole violation.
