Press Release

The following individual was charged on Friday, October 31, 2014, in Madison County Circuit Court, with felony charges of FORGERY, INSURANCE FRAUD, and DISORDERLY CONDUCT:

PATRICK D. JEFFRIES
MALE
AGE: 28
416 SHELLVIEW
BETHALTO, ILLINOIS

The charges stem from two separate incidents that involved Jeffries, which were previously reported to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.
On April 11, 2014, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office responded to Kong Supplements at 202 W. Homer Adams Parkway, Godfrey, Illinois, in reference to a reported burglary. The responding deputy met with the owner of the business, who was identified as Patrick Jeffries. Jeffries reported an unknown person(s) entered his business overnight, stealing more than $2,000.00 in nutritional supplements, smashed a large screen television and kicked in an interior door.
On August 21, 2014, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office met with a subject who identified himself as an investor in Kong Supplements. The investor told the deputy Jeffries unlawfully forged his name on credit and loan applications.
An investigator assigned to the forgery complaint developed information during the investigation that the burglary reported in April of 2014, didn’t actually occur. Evidence gathered during the investigation revealed Jeffries staged the burglary, filed a false police report, and filed a false insurance claim, defrauding State Farm Insurance Company of more than $6,000.00.
The facts of the case were presented to the Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office, who prepared the warrant application, which was issued by the Honorable Richard Tognarelli. Judge Tognarelli set Jeffries bond at $100,000.00.
Jeffries was located and arrested shortly after the issuance of the warrant at All American Supplements, 10047 Gravois Road, Suite 31, Affton, Missouri. Jeffries was transported to the St. Louis County Detention Center, where he was held pending extradition proceedings.
