New York City police arrested an Iron Station man Thursday wanted for identity theft and a number of other charges in Lincoln and Catawba Counties, deputies said.

Aquil Giovanni Jackson, 27, of 526 Mt. Vernon Church Road, was apprehended by officers in the city’s Manhattan District after they ran the suspect’s name through the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said.

The site revealed Jackson had outstanding warrants.

Deputies said he and Dennis Nelson Arquiett, 31, of 3488 Gladden Drive in Lincolnton, used a Hickory woman’s ATM card to steal more than $800 from two locations on Maiden Highway.

The incidents took place between Oct. 5 and 6, an agency press release said.

Arquiett has yet to be located while Jackson will stand trial in Lincoln County upon being extradited back to the area, deputies said.

Jackson faces five felony counts each of identity theft and obtaining property by false pretenses along with one felony count each of conspiracy and resisting, delaying and obstructing a public officer from separate incidents in Lincoln and Catawba Counties, deputies said.

Officers filed two felony counts each of identity theft and obtaining property by false pretenses against Arquiett.

He also faces one felony count each of conspiracy and financial card theft.

According to the North Carolina Department of Corrections website, Jackson maintains felony drug convictions in Lincoln and Gaston Counties dating back to 2006.

The public records site also showed felony forgery convictions under Arquiett’s name. The offenses took place in the county in 2004.

The wanted man has additional misdemeanor offenses to his name for driving with a revoked license in Lincoln County along with larceny and worthless check in Catawba County.
