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 9 counts of access device fraud, 8 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 on-line dockets.
