Out-of-Towner Steals from Bradford Businessman

Someone tried to steal more than $3,000 from local businessman Todd Hennard by doctoring a check Hennard had given him for computers he wanted to buy.

Papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone’s office say on November 20 Hennard contacted 36-year-old Joshua Werline of Levittown and got a quote of $1,150 for the computers. He mailed the check the next day, and Werline deposited it on November 29.

But then Werline changed the number on the check, erased the date and deposited it three more times and got an additional $3,450 without ever providing computers to Hennard.

Werline is charged with three felony counts of forgery and four misdemeanor counts of theft by deception.

He’s free on unsecured bail and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on February 26.

Who buys computers from some unknown street drug addict? Just go to Tiger Direct or CDW.
