LAKE CITY, SC (WMBF) – A Williamsburg County man remained in jail Tuesday after his arrest in Lake City for allegedly selling barbecue plates in several jurisdictions and falsely saying the money would benefit area churches.

According to Lake City Police Chief Kipp Coker, Randy Culick faces five counts of breach of trust and one count of petit larceny.

Online records for the Florence County Detention Center state Culick, of Cades, is also facing charges from Florence police on a breach of trust count and a charge of obtaining signature of property under false pretenses.

He remains behind bars on a $12,184 surety bond.

Coker said the suspect fraudulently sold the plates in Williamsburg and Florence counties, and within the city of Florence.

A post on the LCPD’s Facebook page states Culick was apprehended at a Florence business on Monday by Lake City investigators, who were assisted by Florence police.

According to Coker, investigators contacted area churches about the supposed fundraising. He said church leaders indicated they were not doing any type of sale.

While he didn’t have an exact amount, Coker said the suspect scammed people out of several hundred dollars between the various jurisdictions.

He added Culick could face more charges, as the department continues to get phone calls in reference to the scam.
