On October 6th, 2021, Lower Allen Township Police received a bad check case from Member's 1st Federal Credit Union Investigators.
On August 14th, 2021 at 6:57 p.m., a check for $2,450 was remotely deposited to an account with Member's 1st. The check was drawn on an account with Woodforest National Bank. At 6:58 p.m., a check for $2,800 was remotely deposited to the same Member's 1st account. This check was again drawn on the same Woodforest National Bank account.
Between August 18th, 2021 and August 19th, 2021, numerous ATM withdrawals were conducted in the Lancaster area. On August 19th, 2021 the two checks returned as "non-sufficient funds," causing Member's 1st FCU a total loss of $5,293.41, with fees. The female in ATM surveillance video was identified as Whitney Childs. Further investigation revealed that Childs forged and passed the checks on another member's account at Member's 1st and then withdrew the funds without their knowledge.
Charges were filed and an arrest warrant has been obtained.
