Former England, AR cop, Eric Caffey, arrested and charged with felony theft - He claimed he had cancer and took money from students and community

Eric Caffey's mugshot

Back on October 9th we broke the story that an England, AR cop (and school resource officer) Eric Jason Caffery (a/k/a Eric Rufus) was under investigation in concerning allegations that he made false claims that he had cancer and had received several thousand dollars students and community members had raised to help him fight the disease.

Shortly after we reported that, we were contacted by criminal defense attorney Bill James and threatened with legal action. 

Retaining a lawyer that has an exclusive criminal defense practice is not a good sign.

Our research into Caffey revealed that he and his wife had failed to pay state and federal income taxes for several years and that liens had been filed against them as well as lawsuits and judgments obtained by creditors. Some of these are still outstanding.
On his application of employment to England PD he lied and stated he had never been sued and left the question unanswered in regard to how much debt he had.

According to CourtConnect, before Caffey joined England PD in September 2019, Simmons Bank, Capitol One, Arvest Bank, Synchrony Bank, had filed lawsuits over defaulted accounts.
Caffey also had some problems with a side job as a process server.

Additionally, we found some questionable activity connected to a business registered to Caffey.

Caffey and his wife filed documents to put liens on two 18 wheeler trucks they owed to protect the vehicles from creditors.
On his application of employment to England PD he lied and stated he was not and had never been engaged in any business as an owner or partner. 

Caffey also made a mobile deposit of a city payroll check and then cashed the check at a bank branch, something that would get most folks charged with a crime and get their bank account closed out. Probably fired from their job, especially if they were a cop.

Today the Lonoke County Sheriff's office posted this on social media:

Stay tuned for updates.
