Township Detectives Investigate Alleged Frauds

LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – Two separate and unrelated cases of alleged fraud, both of which apparently have affected Lower Pottsgrove residents as potential victims, are currently on the list of continuing investigations being conducted by township Police Department detectives Sgt. Joseph Campbell and Daniel Kienle, Chief Michael Foltz has reported to the Board of Commissioners.

The first involves what Foltz said was three suspects “who were passing bad checks through a local financial institution.” Residents of municipalities beyond the township also were involved, and consequently law enforcers in several jurisdictions are digging for clues, he noted.

The second case also is multi-jurisdictional, but began in Berks County. It involves alleged elderly fraud regarding what were described as “deceptive business practices of a hearing aid company.”

In both cases, none of the victims, suspects, or companies or institutions were identified by name.

Anyone who believes they could have been a victim in either case should call the detectives at 610-326-1508.
