Former Bladenboro Town Manager indicted by Grand Jury
By Erin Smith
The Bladen County Grand Jury indicted a former Bladenboro town manager on Monday morning. The indictment comes following a State Bureau of Investigation probe of Delane Jackson, who resigned from his post in 2013.
Jackson will face one felony count of obtaining property by false pretenses in excess of $100,000. The SBI probe involved a company called Cygnus to which Jackson is alleged to have ties. The company was contracted by the town to perform work at the town’s wastewater treatment plant.
Jackson is represented by Attorney Butch Pope of Whiteville.
