Fink Avenue man accused of theft by deception

David M. Strothers, of 2207 Fink Ave., has been charged with theft by deception for allegedly making six bogus deposits by submitting empty envelopes at Susquehanna Bank ATMs on Williams Street in the city and on East Third Street in Loyalsock Township, according to city police.

Strothers recorded on the bank’s computer that he had deposited $3,300 into his account between Oct. 20 and Oct. 22, but police said no money actually was deposited. He then withdrew $598 from his account that was not there, police said.

Following his recent arraignment before District Judge Allen P. Page III, Strothers was released on $1,500 bail.
