MACON, Ga. (AP) - Four people, including a Bibb County Sheriff’s deputy, have been arrested in what authorities say was a real-estate scam.

The Macon Telegraph (https://bit.ly/1IlVqEg ) reports 53-year-old sheriff’s deputy Albert Gordon Murray was arrested and jailed Wednesday, along with 58-year-old Clifford Delaney Greene, 51-year-old Lemroyal James and 33-year-old Dimitrious Antoine Brown. Investigators say the four found vacant houses and stole them.

Authorities say last week, Murray tried to have the locks of a home in Lizella changed, filling out false liens and affidavits for the property.

Murray, a veteran property crimes investigator, was fired Wednesday. Authorities believe the four men are affiliates of the Sovereign Citizens Movement, who believe the government is unjust, that they are not bound by U.S. law and banks are a sham.

It is unclear if the men have lawyers.
