Gville man facing theft, fraud charges here; also wanted in Michigan

A Gainesville man has been arrested on a number of theft and fraud charges following an investigation late last month by Hall County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) property crimes investigators.


“The investigation started on June 27 when HCSO civil deputies were in the process of executing an eviction at an apartment in the city of Gainesville when they observed a large amount of cash spread across a kitchen counter. A gun was discovered in a bedroom of the apartment. Deputies detained the occupant of the apartment, identified as Jadekiss Juan Huston, 22, and contacted investigators.

The preliminary investigation found Huston was in possession of $100,000, most of which was “funny money” or fake money used in movie productions. Investigators determined Huston had been using the “funny money” to conduct financial scams using an online app. Investigators also seized debit cards, paperwork from multiple banks, cell phone SIM cards and various cell phones from the apartment on June 27.

In addition, investigators determined Huston had 12 outstanding arrest warrants for identity fraud from the Novi Police Department in his home state of Michigan.

On June 27, Huston was charged by HCSO with a single felony count of forgery in the second degree for possession of a Michigan driver’s license with a fictitious name. He was also served on that date with a bench warrant from the City of Gainesville Municipal Court.

On July 2, Huston was charged with a single count of felony forgery in the first degree and a single misdemeanor count of giving false information to an officer. Those charges were levied by the Gainesville Police Department.

On July 5, Huston was charged with two felony counts of identity theft and two felony counts of financial transaction card theft. Those charges were levied by HCSO investigators.

Huston remains in the Hall County Jail at this time. The investigation is ongoing.”
