• On April 7 at approximately 1 p.m. state police were dispatched to a residence on Sky Hawk Trail, Jackson Township for the report of a theft of several items.

On April 5 a woman went to the barracks to report that her Bank of America debit card had been fraudulently used. She told police the first illegitimate charge occurred in December 2018 and ultimately resulted in approximately $1,200 in false charges.

Kucharska appealed and Bank of America required a police report prior to a second investigation. There are no known suspects or leads at this time.
