A Carbon County resident is facing a charge of theft by unlawful taking following an incident in Lehigh County.
State police at Fogelsville alleges that Tery Overpeck, 54, of the 1200 block of Germans Rd., in Lehighton, stopped at the Bandit Truck Stop, 2277 Golden Key Road, in Weisenberg Township, about 2:58 p.m. on Dec. 19, 2011, and knowingly gave an invalid credit card to fill his vehicle with fuel.
Overpeck then left the scene without signing the receipt and when the business tried to complete the transaction, it was denied. The card company informed the business that they are not responsible for the transaction and will not pay for the fuel.
