In May 2020, the Upper Allen Township Police received a report of identity theft. The victim stated that someone had created a fraudulent social media page using their name, photograph, business name, and other personal information. The suspect then made connections online with other social media users and one of those users informed the victim of the fraudulent account. An investigation determined that Chad Gsell had created, maintained and used the fraudulent social media account. An arrest warrant was obtained for Gsell, and he was taken into custody on May 28, 2020. Gsell was afforded a preliminary arraignment and was committed to the Cumberland County Prison on $450,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 1, 2020. Upper Allen Police were assisted in the apprehension by the Pennsylvania State Police.
