Theft of Thousands in Grocery Store Gift Cards

On July 26, 2010 a township church reported the theft of over $10,000 in grocery store gift cards. The church was selling the cards, good at multiple grocery stores, as part of a fundraiser. These stolen cards are now in circulation within the surrounding communities and have been used to make purchases.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Upper Allen Township Police at (717) 238-9676 or anonymously, via our tip line, at (717) 591-3790. Readers are reminded that, while these cards may be legitimately sold as part of fundraisers, it is important to know who you are doing business with when purchasing them.
