Fayetteville Detectives request the public’s assistance in locating Joseph Ray McNeill.


Joseph McNeill is a 38-year old, bald-headed, black male with brown eyes.  He is 5’10” to 6’0” tall, weighing approximately 200- 250 lbs.  A photo is attached.


McNeill’s current mode of operand is to stand in the parking lot of local businesses, he approaches the customer and introduces himself as an employee of the business, he then asks the customer what they are there to buy; he informs them that he can get a good deal on the item for them if they pay cash.  Once he obtains the cash from the customer he advises them to meet him at the back of the store to pick up their merchandise; he then gets into his car and drives away.


McNeill drives a silver 2006 Hyundai Sonata with license plate number WVX-3839. His last known address is 6887 Big Wood Road.  Police believe he is no longer at that location.   


McNeill has an outstanding arrest warrant for obtaining property by false pretenses on November 20, 2008 at Best Buy on Skibo Road.  Additional warrants will be forthcoming.


Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Joseph Ray McNeill is asked to contact the Fayetteville Police Department at (910) 433-1856.  To leave information anonymously, contact CrimeStoppers at (910) 483-8477.
