FEASTERVILLE, PA — Lower Southampton Township Police are on the hunt for a man accused of committing bank fraud and identity theft. An arrest warrant has been issued for Dennis J. Swint, 56, of Schoharie, NY, following an alleged fraudulent withdrawal from a Santander Bank located in Feasterville, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

According to the police report, on January 3, 2024, Swint allegedly entered the bank using fake identification in the victim’s name. He is said to have withdrawn $5,000 in cash and obtained a bank check in the amount of $53,000.

Swint reportedly used a banking application displayed on his cell phone that contained the victim’s account information, which allegedly misled the bank teller and facilitated the transactions. The victim received an alert about the transactions and promptly contacted the bank, which managed to stop payment of the check.

On January 22, 2024, Swint was arrested in Westampton, NJ, while allegedly attempting a similar bank account takeover. He was positively identified and remanded to the Burlington NJ County Correctional Facility.

The Lower Southampton Township Police Department has now issued an arrest warrant for Swint on charges of forgery, identity theft, theft, receiving stolen property, and criminal use of a communication device. All these offenses are classified as felonies.

Swint is described as a 56-year-old white male, about 5’9″ tall, weighing 150 lbs, with brown hair and hazel eyes. Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Dennis J. Swint or has seen him is urged to contact the Lower Southampton Township Police Department at 215-357-1235 or submit a tip online.
