A former Tamaqua man was returned to the Schuylkill County Prison, Pottsville, following his preliminary hearing Tuesday morning before District Judge Stephen Bayer, Tamaqua.

Jason William Miller, 33, last known address of 34 N. Greenwood St., Tamaqua, waived a hearing on charges of forgery, access/credit card fraud, theft by deception and receiving stolen property in connection with an Oct. 2011 incident.

On Oct. 23, Herbert Welsh of Tamaqua contacted the department to report that his Discover card, a cell phone, a Garmin GPS and several other items had been stolen from his parked car the day before.

A short time later, Welsh learned the Discover card had been used at a local convenience store to purchase $124.94 worth of merchandise.

After reviewing surveillance footage, officers identified Miller as the purchaser and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

On Jan. 5 of this year, Miller was taken into custody by New Philadelphia Police and lodged in the Schuylkill County Prison on a bench warrant that had been issued for his arrest.

Miller was returned to the prison in lieu of bail and also due to the bench warrant.
