Perkasie police said they are searching for a woman who allegedly tried to withdraw thousands of dollars from a credit union using a withdrawal slip that belonged to a woman whose purse was stolen last month.
The white woman, wearing glasses, used the drive-through window at the American Heritage Credit Union on Walnut Street in the borough to pass the request to withdraw $3,000 on June 10 at 1:30 p.m.
Authorities said, the accused woman, who has brown hair, looked similar to the victim. Her vehicle is described as a newer white BMW SUV with a temporary, paper, registration. The state was not known.
The woman, who had the victim’s identification, was given the money, according to police. She then tried to withdraw $3,500 from the victim’s account at the New Britain branch of the credit union, but was told she had to come in to take that much out. The suspect then fled, police said.
Before the Perkasie incident, police said, she fraudulently withdrew funds from the same person’s account in Philadelphia and in East Norriton Township in Montgomery County.
Anyone with information is asked to call Perkasie Police Detective Gro at 215-257-6876 or 800-4PA-TIPS (8477), where anonymous tips can be left.
