New Jersey man defrauds a bank out of $386,000 and is arrested at an Atlantic City casino
Daniel A. White, 49, opened 86 fake checking accounts at various TD Banks in New Jersey, and in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania. Making use of a fraudulent scheme spanning five states, White defrauded TD Bank out of $386,000. White’s luck began running out on the 9th of May when a bank employee became suspicious and contacted police. That is when White escaped, with police leading the chase. However, the police chase was called off when it was deemed too dangerous to pursue White. On the 10th of May, another bank employee recognized White and contacted police. Again, the police gave chase, but called off the chase when White was observed speeding through school zones and running several school buses off the road while traveling in the wrong direction. Finally, police tracked and arrested White at an Atlantic City casino, where he was charged with multiple counts of second-degree eluding police in a car, and fraud and theft charges. He was transported to Ocean County Jail and held on $125,000 bail.
