-A A +A

Attorney General Jack Conway and his Office of Consumer Protection today announced that the owner of an online computer and electronics store has been indicted on four counts of theft by deception less than $10,000, three counts of theft by deception less than $500, and a persistent felony offender charge.

A Russell County grand jury returned the indictment on 32-year-old Jonas L. Snow Monday morning.

Snow is the owner of AllAboutComputersKy.com. From 2009 through 2014, Snow is alleged to have taken money from multiple victims who placed orders for computers and other electronics over the Internet; however, Snow never delivered any of the items purchased. The amount of money taken from the victims totals approximately $36,000.

Theft by deception less than $10,000 is a class D felony. Theft by deception less than $500 is a class A misdemeanor.

A charge is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
