Police probing theft of $200,000 from man, 92

From staff reports

Franklin state police are investigating what is believed to be a transfer of more than $200,000 from a 92-year-old man’s personal money market account to a suspect’s personal checking account.

Police say the transfers have occurred on multiple occasions from last May to last week without the man’s knowledge or consent.

It is believed that the suspect has been using or spending a large amount of the money for personal benefits without the man’s knowledge, police said.

Police are describing the location of the incidents as a Cornplanter Township residence, and they say the suspect is known.
