Man arrested for operating scams in 4 states

Posted:

Williamson County sheriff's deputies arrested a man suspected of operating scams in at least four states.

The man, Sidney Jeffords, was arrested in an undercover sting operation on Thursday.

Jeffords was charged with theft over $1,000 and booked into the Williamson County jail on a $150,000 bond.

Jeffords, 33, who uses the name Al Jones as an alias, reportedly used Craig's List to contact individuals looking for rental property.

According to police, Jeffords would lie about owning the property then collect a rental agreement fee.

Jeffords is scheduled to appear in court on October 25.

Authorities believe there are more victims.  Anyone who has dealt with Jeffords is urged to call 615-790-5554.
