Business owner accused of bogus tombstone transactions

NATCHEZ — A Natchez business owner has been arrested and charged with felony false pretense, according to the Attorney General’s Office.

Dwight Gibson, 45, owner of Clear Creek Monuments in Natchez, was arrested by investigators of the Attorney General’s Public Integrity Division and the Adam County Sheriff’s Office on two counts of felony false pretense.

Gibson is accused of selling cemetery monuments and headstones and then failing to deliver the merchandise. He was booked into the Adams County jail and placed under a $100,000 bond. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years behind bars per count.

As with all cases, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
