PERKASIE, PA — The Perkasie Borough Police say they are investigating a Theft/Fraud incident that occurred on June 10, 2022, at approximately 1:28 PM.

The pictured White female suspect, operating the pictured vehicle, entered the drive-through lane at the Perkasie branch of the American Heritage Credit Union located on Walnut Street in Perkasie Borough, Bucks County. She presented the teller with a withdrawal slip for $3,000 from an account belonging to a female whose purse (containing identification and banking account information) was stolen from her vehicle in Bryn Mawr on May 21, 2022.

The suspect is described as a White female with brown hair, and at the time of the incident, was wearing glasses. The suspect’s appearance was similar to that of the victim, and as she was in possession of the victim’s identification, the bank completed the transaction. Just prior to this incident, the suspect fraudulently withdrew funds from the same victim’s account at AHCU branches in Philadelphia (Philadelphia County) and East Norriton Township (Montgomery County).

Immediately following the Perkasie incident, the suspect attempted to withdraw $3,500 from the victim’s bank account at the New Britain branch of the AHCU; however, she was informed that the amount exceeded the drive-through processing limit. When asked to enter the facility to complete the transaction, the suspect declined and fled the scene, leaving the victim’s identification in the bank’s possession. The suspect’s vehicle is described as a newer white BMW SUV bearing a temporary (paper) registration from an unknown state.
