Sedona Man Arrested On Several Fraud, Theft And Forgery Charges

A Sedona man has been arrested on multiple charges in connection with defrauding several Yavapai County residents out of more than $30-thousand. Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies conducted a three-month investigation where 34-year-old Michele Wilcox was stealing checks out of mailboxes, altering them and depositing them into his accounts. The first case happened in February when Wilcox stole a check from a victim in Sedona. Then another victim reached out to authorities to report their mail had been stolen. Since then, Wilcox has been linked to at least three cases and authorities are investigating the possibility of more. Wilcox is currently charged with two counts of fraud, five counts of the theft, six counts of forgery and three counts of aggravated identity theft. If anyone believes they have been a victim in this case, contact the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office at (928) 771-3260 or Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232.
