August 30 - Fraud
- 300 block of Red Lion Rd.
Khalif Scott, 23, of Philadelphia presented a fake paycheck to a car dealer in order to purchase a new vehicle. Scott claimed to be an administrative assistant to Darryl Barkley, who is a current employee of Allegheny Valley School (AVS).
The administrator of AVS, Darlene Fulton, contacted police once she was contacted by her human resources department to confirm Scott was employee, which he was not. After comparing two pay stubs, police brought Barkley in for questioning. He appeared nervous and hesitant to answer any questions, according to police.
While speaking with Scott on the phone, he admitted to police that he altered the paycheck and that he obtained the check from his friend Barkley. Scott was able to purchase a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix from Best Buy in Town Auto. The owner of the dealership said Scott was going to return the car to him. Scott and Barkley have criminal charges pending and it is still under investigation.
