Police: Local man overcharges bank card


WALLINGFORD — A local man was arrested Friday night on a warrant issued by the Wallingford Police Department’s Crime Prevention Division, stemming from his alleged fraudulent use of an ATM card in May.

David Boober, 25, of Wallingford, was allegedly involved in misuse of his personal checking account by continuing to use his bank card to spend money in the sum of $1,297.51 after he had accrued a negative balance, according to Sgt. Brian Noeck.

Boober was charged with fourth-degree larceny, fraudulent use of an automated teller machine, and six counts of issuing a bad check. He was being held in lieu of a $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on Oct. 3.
