Contractor charged with defrauding FEMA

GULFPORT — A federal grand jury has indicted a North Carolina businessman who contracted with FEMA to set up travel trailers in South Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina.

Clarence Bundy Morrison IV of Fayetteville, N.C., is charged with conspiring to defraud FEMA.

The charges against the 42-year-old Morrison include wire fraud and false statements and claims.

The indictment alleges Morrison gave false information to get a contract to block, level and anchor travel trailers.

The Sun Herald reports Morrison was arrested May 28 and taken before a judge in Raleigh, N.C. He was released pending a hearing in Gulfport. A hearing date has not been set.

It was not immediately known whether Morrison has an attorney.
