NORTH CAPE MAY – Throughout June, Lower Township police received multiple complaints reporting check fraud. The tips came from residents of the Victoria Commons Nursing Home in North Cape May.
An investigation led police to David Beck Jr. of North Cape May. Beck, 26, was an employee of the nursing home, according to a Lower Township Police release.
A search warrant at Beck’s residence revealed evidence of activity related to check fraud, police said.
Krista Rickards, the Administrator at Victoria Commons told the Herald the crime was reported as soon as they discovered it.
“In June, we became aware of two instances of financial theft. We immediately reported this to the appropriate authorities, and the funds were restored,” Rickards stated.
“The individual arrested, who no longer works here, was hired 6 months ago after having passed all background checks,” Rickards continued.
Beck has been charged with multiple counts of theft by deception, forgery and credit card theft.
Any charges are accusations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
