Never “Lien” On Your Laptop

Laurens City Police have served additional charges on a man who was already in jail for a child support charge. 40-year-old Billy Wayne “Allen” Tucker of 508 Wofford Street, Greenwood was served Tuesday with the charge of Willful Sale of Property on Lien. The warrant states that on August 3rd Billy Tucker pawned a Dell laptop at Rich’s Pawn Shop which still had a lien against it.

   Tucker was arrested August 13th on a Family Court Bench Warrant, in which Judge Bridges found Tucker to be $1,491 behind on child support payments. In lieu of paying that money and court fees, he sentenced Mr. Tucker to six months in the Johnson Detention Center.
