 James Henrikson (Henrickson/Henriksen) and Sarah Creveling are con-artists. James approached me for work in ND. He is very charismatic and I trusted him. I started working with him and he signed a contract (with an alias spelling of his last name.) James used an alias because he has been arrest more than a dozen times for sexual assault/rape, theft, burglary, assault, manufacturing and distribution of maijuana and many, many other things in the state of Oregon. Turns out he doesn't have any ownership in the company either, it is completely owned by his wife, Sarah Creveling (who uses a her last name to also hide James' past). Sarah was complicit in the fraud and confirmed his alias name on paperwork.


After months of work, James and Sarah embezzled millions of dollars, doctors financial reports and stole from the company. I was never paid. I have heard dozens of reports from other subcontractors who were also ripped off by James Henriksen and Sarah Crevelilng. [continued below]....

..... They are currently running their trucking company (Blackstone Crude) in Williston, ND.


Please avoid Blackstone Crude and James Henriksen and Sarah Creveling. They have threatened several of their employees, intentionally sabotaged peoples equipment and one of their employees "Disappeared" in February 2012 after arguing with James and has been the subject of a statewide missing persons search.


If you are an employer, please avoid these felons and thieves.

Sarah Creveling Charged with Fraud, Money Laundering

AUTHOR: - ()

Creveling pleads not guilty to money laundering, mail fraud


By Andrew Sheeler / Bismarck Tribune on Sep 22, 2015 at 12:24 a.m.


BISMARCK -- The ex-wife of a former Watford City man facing federal charges in a murder-for-hire plot pleaded not guilty Monday to mail fraud and three counts of money laundering.

Sarah Marie Creveling was indicted on Sept. 2 and appeared Monday via video conference from Nashville, Tenn., before U.S. District Court for North Dakota Magistrate Judge Charles Miller Jr.

Creveling, who could be sentenced to 10 years in prison for each of the money laundering charges if found guilty, is alleged to have bilked investors out of more than $1.7 million.

Creveling's ex-husband, James Henrikson, waits in a Yakima, Wash., jail for his October trial — on three murder-for-hire related counts and one count of conspiracy to distribute heroin — and faces a possible death penalty if convicted.

He is accused of arranging the murder of his former business partner Douglas Carlile in his Spokane, Wash., home in 2013, as well as the murder of Kristopher Clarke, a Henrikson employee who vanished in 2012.

In Creveling's case, Henrikson is not directly named in court papers but is referred to as Creveling's husband and co-conspirator.

Creveling and her former husband managed Blackstone, a limited liability corporation that promised investors a 12.5 percent monthly return on investment in exchange for providing the funds to purchase trucks and trailers for use in the Bakken region.

The indictment alleges that, over a three-year period beginning in January 2011, Creveling and her husband used the mail system to encourage investors to send them money, with that money then being laundered into other LLCs set up by Creveling and her husband or else spent on personal property.

Creveling allegedly told investors that the company's trucks and trailers were operating at a loss or "were damaged, destroyed or required extensive, and expensive, repairs."

Questionable transactions

Court papers cite business transactions that were red-flagged.

-- Investors were allegedly told that they could sell or "part-out" their trucks or trailers, transferring the titles to Creveling in exchange for a promise to send whatever money was obtained from scrapping them.

-- On one occasion, federal officials allegedly tracked the transfer of $600,000 of investor funds to an account held by Kingdom Dynamics Enterprises, another LLC owned by Creveling and Henrikson.

-- On another occasion, Creveling allegedly withdrew more than $60,000, which was spent on a personal vehicle.

In addition to the criminal charges, several of Creveling's assets have been targeted for forfeiture to the U.S. government, including 320 acres of mineral rights in Dunn County owned by Kingdom Dynamics Enterprises and three vehicles worth a total of $114,250.

James Henrikson ARRESTED

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

James Henrikson arrested on federal firearms charges




James Henrikson was arrested on federal firearms charges Saturday by agents from Homeland Security Investigations and the Bismarck/Mandan Metro Area Narcotics Task Force.

Henrikson is being charged with illegal possession of firearms by a convicted felon. He is also a person of interest in the December murder of Douglas Carlile.

Henrikson was a business associate of Carlile, who was murdered last month in his South Hill home.

Detectives discovered Carlile, one of four owners in Kingdom Dynamics Enterprises, was trying to buy Henrikson out of his share of 640 acres of North Dakota land they owned mineral rights with plans to drill for oil.

Those attempts to buy Henrikson out were rebuffed, while Henrikson, according to court documents, allegedly attempted to buy Carlile out in order to attract an investor who refused to put money into Kingdom Dynamics Enterprises as long as Carlile was involved.

The tensions between the two were so high, a witness told detectives someone has been practicing writing Carlile's signature inside Henrikson's home and confirmed he overheard Henrikson threatening to kill Carlile and his family.

Henrikson, however, told detectives he never threatened his business partner and is not responsible for his murder.

Timothy Suckow was arrested earlier this week for the murder of Carlile. Detectives believe Henrickson or another business associate of Carlile may have hired Suckow to carry out the murder. 

Suckow left a trail of evidence leading police to his Spokane Valley home. A van seen leaving the scene of Carlile's home directly after the murder was found at Suckow's place of work and, detectives say, a glove found in the back yard of Carlile's home has DNA evidence matching Suckow.
