A Cassville, Missouri man is facing felony charges following a scam investigation conducted by Cherokee County Sheriff's Investigators.
Jarrod Wayne Archer, 37, was taken into custody in Ottawa County, Oklahoma last week after an arrest warrant was issued for him in Cherokee County Kansas District Court.
Archer is accused of contacting a Cherokee County resident by phone in July 2023, posing to be a law enforcement officer. Archer allegedly told the resident a co-worker had been taken into custody but could be released if the victim would send bond money through Venmo and MoneyGram.
Through their investigation, detectives identified Archer as the suspected perpetrator and sought charges of Felony Theft and False Impersonation.
