A repeat offender is on the run and once again wanted in Beaufort County.

On Dec 4, 2012 the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office received a report of larceny at a residence on Old Blounts Creek Road in Chocowinity and a stolen firearm. On Dec 13, 2012 the Sheriff's Office received a report of stolen checks from the same residence. Deputies learned the suspect was a resident of the household and relative of the victim.

An investigation resulted in arrest warrants for William Jefferson, 23, of Chocowinity, charging him with Larceny of a Firearm, Forgery of an Instrument, Uttering Forged Instrument, and Obtaining Property by False Pretense.

This is not Jefferson's first run in with the law. Jefferson is also wanted for failing to appear in Beaufort County Court on unrelated charges.
