A man has been accused of stealing money from his father
A man has been accused of stealing money from his father. Ronald Souliere Jr, 36, of Orleans, pleaded not guilty in Orleans Superior Court to a felony charge of identity theft and a misdemeanor charge of false pretenses and was released on conditions. Ronald Souliere Sr., 68, reported that his son had stolen his checkbook from his residence in Barton. He noticed his checkbook was missing and that upon calling his bank there was a $200.00 check that had been cashed from his account that he did not authorize. Souliere Sr advised his son has done this in the past, but he has not done anything about it. On Sept. 29, police received video footage from the alleged victim’s bank which reportedly showed a man who matched the DMV photo of Souliere Jr. Souliere faces a possible sentence of up to four years in prison and $6,000 in fines if convicted.
