SUSPECTED ARIZONA CON ARTISTS CAPTURED

     Two suspected Arizona con artists are in custody thanks in part to the creative work of Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Investigator Mike Irwin.

     35-year old Shae Allan Hensley and 32-year old Theresa Michelle Hensley (alias of Theresa Hill) had been living at 8327 Looney Road in Baker for the past year. However both are wanted in Arizona on multiple charges, including grand larceny, conspiracy to commit theft, fraudulent schemes and artifices, and theft. They’re accused of stealing at least 80-thousand dollars from Three Forks Construction Company in Apache County Arizona where Shae Allan Hensley had worked as a construction supervisor.

    When Arizona authorities tracked them to Okaloosa County , Investigator Mike Irwin called Theresa Hensley and told her it appeared someone may have forged her signature on a check. She was asked to come in and verify her signature. Hensley and her husband went to the Sheriff’s Office in Crestview to check it out, were interviewed, and then arrested as fugitives from justice.

     They have waived extradition and are returning to Arizona today to face charges.
