Cops: Indiana County man attempted to take $38K from woman's bank account
A Indiana man was arrested by borough police Wednesday on charges of acquiring personal information from a 61-year-old woman and attempting to steal more than $38,000 out of her bank account.
Victor Montoya, 29, is charged with nine counts of access device fraud, eight counts each of attempted theft and attempted receiving stolen property, 13 counts of criminal use of a communication facility and two counts, according to officer Leroy Anderson.
Anderson alleges that on July 31 and Aug. 1 Montoya obtained the personal information from the woman and then attempted to withdraw more than $38,000 from her bank account. Police also allege during the same period that Montoya also acquired biographical information on a 66-year-old man and then attempted to open up a bank account in his name.
Montoya was being held in the Indiana County Jail awaiting arraignment on the complaints, according to online dockets.
