Two more accused in COVID-19 rental assistance theft case


Booth also said another man, Mickey James Melton, 50, of Flowery Branch, has been charged with an “almost identical scam” to Mosley’s. Investigators determined that Melton knew Mosley and allegedly “worked together while committing their crimes.”

In the Mosley case, “staff processing records became suspect after noting that the most recent request in the series included months for which Mosley had previously received checks,” Booth said.

Mosley is said to have received over $ 20,000 in rent assistance.

“According to preliminary details, Melton posed as a landlord, fraudulently obtaining approximately $ 21,000 in county rent assistance,” Booth wrote in a press release.

Melton was jailed Friday October 1 in Hall County Jail and charged with two counts of theft by deception. He posted a bond the same day.

Mosley was released from Hall County Jail on Sunday, September 26, after posting $ 66,800 bail.

Morgan was released Thursday after posting $ 5,700 bail.

No lawyer information was available for any of these suspects on Friday, October 8 from district court officials.

The Times tried to reach Mosley and Morgan, but the phone numbers listed for them were disconnected. No phone number has been publicly listed for Melton.
