A Waupaca teen has been accused of stealing more than $1,600 with his grandmother’s bank card.
Kendall E. Koch, 18, Waupaca, is charged with 13 counts of credit card fraud and one count of felony bail jumping.
On the morning of April 28, Koch’s grandmother went to the Waupaca County Sheriff’s Office and reported that somebody had been making withdrawals from her account using her Farmers State Bank debit card.
Unauthorized withdrawals had been made on her card earlier, and the bank issued her a new card. Then new withdrawals were made on her new card.
The woman told investigators the card was not missing, and she did not know how anyone could have obtained her PIN.
Investigators met with Farmers State Bank officers and viewed surveillance video of the drive-through ATM in downtown Waupaca when an unauthorized withdrawal of $200 was made on the morning of Monday, April 13. The vehicle’s license plate was registered to the grandmother and Koch was the driver, according to the criminal complaint.
Koch was arrested at his grandmother’s house on Saturday, May 2.
Koch currently faces burglary and theft charges involving an incident from July 2014 at his grandmother’s neighbor’s home in Farmington.
