McCracken County Jail
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY — The owner of a neighborhood pet cremation service who was arrested earlier this month right after investigators say decomposing animals had been identified in his automobile faces new theft and fraud charges, the McCracken County Sheriff’s Workplace says.
Jacob Jetton was arrested on Could 9 and once more on Could ten amid accusations that he was charging people today for pet cremation, but not basically cremating the animals’ remains. Announcing the initial arrests on Could 11, the sheriff’s workplace stated the remains of eight animals had been identified in his automobile, which includes multiple animals that had been provided to him for cremation. Clients of his company, Paws to Don’t forget, also told deputies they had been concerned since they did not get their pets’ cremated remains, and other people stated they worried that the purported remains they received had been not basically their pets’ remains.
Jetton is also accused of operating the company without the need of a county company license or the appropriate licensure for collecting animal remains, as properly as other ordinance violations. On Could ten, he was charged with two counts of theft by deception of far more than $1,000 but much less than $ten,000.
On Thursday, the McCracken County Sheriff’s Workplace announced added charges against Jetton, who is now accused of fraudulently charging added, unauthorized charges to the credit or debit cards of previous buyers. The sheriff’s workplace says in total, these unauthorized charges added up to far more than $1,000.
He’s also accused of theft with regards to a distinct company he was operating, which the sheriff’s workplace also describes as an illegitimate business. The company at the center of that accusation is Jetton Music. Investigators say Jetton sold a guitar to a consumer for $1,400 that was later identified to be an off-brand instrument only valued at $300.
Jetton is now charged with theft by deception of far more than $1,000 and fraudulent use of a credit card of far more than $1,000. Each are felony charges. Concerning the theft by deception charge, a preliminary hearing has been scheduled for June six.
The prior charges he faces consist of initial-degree disorderly conduct, operating without a license for the company of collecting animal carcasses, failure to notify the division of transportation of an address modify and several neighborhood city ordinances. Concerning these charges, an arraignment is scheduled for Could 30, according to Kentucky’s court record’s web site.
