Greek Council treasurer steals $2,600, charged with employee felony theft


James Jones, treasurer for UNF’s Greek Council, was arrested and charged with a third-degree felony, employee theft, for charging an unauthorized $2,600 onto a fraternity’s credit card, according to a police report released by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

He was given the credit card with the intent of purchasing a few hundred dollars worth of trophies, and when approached about the extra purchases, said he would pay the organization back and wrote a check for the total amount taken, according to the report.

The Spinnaker tried to contact Jones through e-mail and over the phone, but he did not respond.

The Spinnaker also tried to speak with many members of Fraternity & Sorority Life, but the department offered ‘no comment’ on the situation.
