An Ashe County, N.C., developer who has connections with two developments in Grayson County has been arrested and charged with six counts of embezzlement.
Lt. William Sands of the Ashe County Sheriff’s Department said Joe B. Weddington, 63, of Crumpler, N.C., was arrested Feb. 16.
Sands said Weddington’s arrest came after a month-long investigation. The arrest was the result of $15,406.55 that Weddington allegedly converted to his own use.
