The Dale County Sheriff's Office says its investigators have arrested Montgomery resident Nakia L. DeJarnette, 38, on a parole violation out of Autauga County. DeJarnette is a criminal sex offender.

Authorities say an alert Ozark business owner contacted the Sheriff's Office about a possible scam involving DeJarnette. When DeJarnette arrived at the business, investigators took him into custody.

Also detained as additional suspects in the alleged scam were three other found at a local restaurant. Authorities say each DeJarnette down from Montgomery.

Investigators say DeJarnette and the others used a false business name and a stolen credit card to purchase a large amount of 18-wheeler tires from the business. 

DeJarnette was arrested and transported to the Dale County Jail.

Dale County Sheriff's Investigators contacted Montgomery area law enforcement officials. Further charges are pending.
