Use Internet Purchase Exchange Location At Sheriff's Office

Lincoln County Sheriff's
Office Press Release

LINCOLNTON, N.C. – Lincoln County Sheriff Bill Beam wants to remind residents about the Internet Purchase Exchange Location at the Sheriff’s Office on John M. Howell Memorial Drive, Lincolnton, NC.

The purpose is to provide a neutral and safe location for people to exchange items purchased or sold on the internet. More and more people are turning to local internet sites like Craig’s List and Facebook groups as a way to find a good bargain without having to pay a shipping fee. Perpetrators see this style of shopping as an easy target for their next victim.

Finding a secure location to use as an internet purchase exchange is now easier with designated parking spaces at the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office to make exchanges that are under 24-hour surveillance.

Shoppers that may be nervous about meeting with a stranger to pick up their purchase can do so at the designated secure locations at the Sheriff’s Office. The area is designated by a sign located at a parking space in front of the Harven A. Crouse Detention and Law Enforcement Center at 700 John M. Howell Memorial Drive off Wilma Sigmon Road in Lincolnton.

Lincoln County Sheriff Bill Beam said, “It’s an opportunity for people to have a safe place to come and exchange their purchases.”
