POTTSTOWN, Pa. (CBS) — A 28-year-old Montgomery County man is free on bail, facing theft and related charges and accused of preying on elderly customers at the Pottstown bank where he worked.

Prosecutors say Jon Dugan was a “personal banker” at the Wells Fargo Bank on East High Street.  He was supposed to be helping customers with their banking needs, but they say he was also helping himself to some of their money.

The Douglassville man is charged with stealing nearly $9,000 from six women over a period of three months.

“Each time, these women were alone,” notes Montgomery County DA Risa Ferman, “and based upon the seemingly helpful representations of this man, they relied upon him.  And instead of helping them manage their finances, he stole from them.”

The women ranged in age from 77 to 92.

Police say he would gain their trust and their signatures, and then transfer money, keeping some for himself.

It was the bank’s investigators who caught the alleged thefts.
