LINCOLNTON, N.C. – After being tracked by GPS for over 12 hours across the state of North Carolina John O. Lafferty Jr. was apprehended in Carteret County Monday night by the bail bondsman who had gone part of his bond.

Lafferty is now in the Harven Crouse Detention Center with a scheduled court appearance this afternoon, Tuesday, Oct. 1.

Law enforcement officers began searching for the former Lincolnton attorney after he failed to show up for court Monday, Sept. 30.

Lafferty is accused of felony embezzlement of more than $100,000.  He was arrested last week in Carteret County and was freed on a quarter million dollars bond pending a first appearance in Lincoln County Superior Court on Sept. 30.

When he failed to appear in court yesterday Judge Forrest Bridges issued a bench warrant for his arrest and upped Lafferty’s bond to a million dollars--cash only.
