Bridgewater Energy, Blackstone Crude and its affiliates are trucking, construction and service companies in the oil industry located in North Dakota. These companies are owned by James Terry Henrikson and his wife Sarah Creveling. James and Sarah are con-artists and thieves and should be considered extremely dangerous. James is a convicted felon with dozens of arrests including fraud, theft, drug trafficking and rape. They currently owe millions of dollars to vendors, former employees and investors whom they refuse to pay and may be involved with the "disappearance" of an employee and the murder of a business partner.

This post is dedicated to protecting the people of North Dakota, especially those who work in the oil industry, from dangerous people like James and Sarah. In this website you will find a timeline of James' criminal history and the fraud that he and Sarah are perpetrating in North Dakota, especially on the Fort Berthold reservation. There are also several court documents included. At the bottom will be a list of contact information for the various courts and/or probation offices where James' criminal history can be verified.

Our goal is to expose the fraud that James Henrikson (he goes by the alias Henricksen) and his wife Sarah Creveling have committed in North Dakota in an effort to prevent them from stealing from honest companies and harming innocent people working in the oil industry in this great state, and to keep our people safe from these dangerous convicts and con-artists (Robert Delao, a manager at Blackstone and James' right hand man, was convicted of double homicide for killing two rival gang members in cold blood - and he's working in the Blackstone office on the Fort Berthold Reservation!)

Let's get these people out of North Dakota so they can't continue their crimes here. 




James was born in 1979. He dropped out of school in 11th grade. He married his girlfriend, Cassie Henrikson, after she became pregnant. They lived in Deschutes County, Oregon where James started a contractor business. James got involved with drugs, specifically using steroids, and became abusive. This led to their divorce in 2000. During their divorce, James and Cassie owned a boat. James took the boat out on the lake and intentionally sunk the boat. He then filed an insurance claim on the boat but the insurance company determined that it was sunk intentionally and the claim was denied. James was ordered by the court to pay full restitution for the boat (Exhibit 1)

March 13, 2002

James was recently released from jail, but violated probation twice and was sent to a six day prison sanction. Upon release James attempted to burglarize a home. The police responded and positively identified both the vehicle involved with the crime and James Henrikson. James attempted to elude police, resulting in a high speed chase through the city, a hit and run and other property damage. James was arrested. The PPO reported "Henrickson just recently got out of jail...Mr. Henrickson appears to have returned to his criminal behavior. It would appear that Mr. Henrickson has made the decision to return to jail."

James was charged with:

  • Attempted Assault II,
  • 3 counts of Theft I,
  • Burglery II,
  • Attempted Theft I,
  • Obtaining a Fraudulent Signature,
  • 2 counts of Fleeing or Attempting to Elude a Police Officer,
  • 5 counts of Probation Violation,

2004 - 2007

James moved to Kennewik County, Washington where he married his second wife, Stacie Henrikson. Together they started several construction companies, all of which were filed under Stacie's name in order to hide James' criminal background (remember, his contractor's license was revoked in Oregon for committing a felony.) Those companies included:

  • Greystone Masonry, LLC 5/27/2005

  • Greystone Development Group, LLC 1/16/2006

  • West Coast Cranes, LLC 01/01/2007

  • Extreme Speed Race Team, LLC 01/03/2007

  • Greystone Granite & Marble, LLC 4/25/2007

  • GH Builders, LLC 11/05/2007

    In 2007 James began making plans to leave Stacie. He started hiding company profits from Stacie and his creditors. He also stopped paying vendors, accumulating a large debt.



    Jan 28, 2008 - James and Stacie Henrikson filed Bankruptcy (Case #08-00280).

  • James' businesses were failing so he cheated his vendors, stole from the companies and     his wife and hid the money away. He and his wife filed bankruptcy but the court denied     the bankruptcy because the creditors demonstrated that James had the money to pay the   debts. James filed for divorce and abandoned his wife leaving her with a tremendous debt.

    James again attempted Insurance Fraud. Similar to destroying his boat with his first        wife, James intentionally drove his semi-truck through his house, destroying both. He   claimed the brakes failed and filed for insurance on both the truck and the home. The insurance company determined that the destruction was not a result of mechanical failure and denied the claim.

Sarah Creveling Charged with Fraud, Money Laundering

AUTHOR: - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, April 19, 2016

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 - ()

POSTED: Sunday, January 19, 2014

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.
