A Riegelsville man has admitted to arranging an ATM withdrawal scheme that allegedly netted him $500 in reimbursements he was not entitled to from a Lower Saucon Township bank, township police said Friday.
In a post on their Crimewatch website, police said Jared Boschen, 37, went to the Lafayatte Ambassador Bank on Rt. 378 and disputed two ATM transactions–one a withdrawal for $200, and one a withdrawal for $300–that were recorded at Penn Community Bank in Riegelsville on different dates last summer.
Police said Boschen was then reimbursed $500 by the bank, which later contacted the department to report Boschen’s claims as suspicious activity.
“Through investigation it was discovered that the alleged transactions were made by a female identified as the fiancé of Mr. Boschen,” police said. “Mr. Boschen was interviewed by police and admitted his fiancé had his permission to use his debit card.”
Boschen was charged Friday with Misdemeanor 1 theft by deception and Misdemeanor 1 receiving stolen property, police said.
