Police: Man took $500 from bank drive-thru left by another
CLEARFIELD, PA - Police say a Pennsylvania man hoping to pass a fraudulent check instead stole $500 when he found that much money left behind by another customer at a drive-thru bank window.
Twenty-eight-year-old Randy Gillen Jr. was in the Clearfield County Jail on Monday, awaiting a Feb. 11 preliminary hearing.
Police tell WJAC-TV that the Clearfield man hoped to cash a bogus $1,900 check at CNB Bank, but instead drove away when he saw the money left behind in the carrier tube from the previous customer on Jan. 29.
Police say Gillen later tried to pass the bad check at another bank, and was rebuffed before Clearfield police found him last Wednesday, hiding in his girlfriend's closet.
Online court records don't list an attorney for him.
