The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office along with the North Carolina Department of Insurance and Department of Motor Vehicles began an investigation into a Wilmington company nearly two years ago that led to an arrest last week.
The Department of Insurance and DMV received numerous community complaints regarding fraud and possible predatory lending processes stemming from a company named Time Finance Services. An investigation reported in December 2009 in Brunswick County led to a cooperative effort from Sheriff’s Office Detectives, DOI and DMV Inspectors.
On Friday, May 27 the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office North End Task Force, DOI and DMV executed a search warrant on Time Finance Services, on Market Street in Wilmington.
Investigators seized pertinent documents and items relevant to the investigation. Branch Manager, Gregory Gurney, was arrested by Detective Ed Carter and transported to the Brunswick County Detention Facility. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are pending at this time.
