This is a perfect demonstration of Karma in action. Sid Metts ripped off our family for more than $2000 a few years ago. He got granite from our tile and stone store with a bad check. My father-in-law, Charlie, never pressed charges because Sid would promise to make good on it and Charlie was just a good guy who gave people more chances than they deserved. Seeing Sid finally come to justice for his dishonesty reaffirms my belief that you do reap what you sow.

Sid Metts has been routinely stealing money from customers and suppliers alike over a period of years. Last year he ripped me off for over one thousand dollars. I later found out he had defrauded two of my neighbors as well as two local stone merchants. I won a small claims judgment against him and also filed a criminal complaint with the Craven Sheriff's department, although unlike Jones County, they have apparently done nothing about it. If you know anyone who has been scammed by this man, please contact your local sheriff and help put this fraud in jail where he belongs.

The Craven County Sheriff's Department is now actively pursuing my criminal complaint against Sid Metts. He has gotten away with his felonies for years because people are reluctant to come forward. It is an easy process, so I urge anyone who has information or who has been scammed by this man to contact your local sheriff and help bring him to justice.

Linda and Kathy,
Please contact City of New Bern PD, they are actively investigating this man. Contact Officer Frank Hix.
I would also contact Jones County Law Enforcement.
Detective Brain Paceli.
They may need your statements.
