A former PENNSYLVANIA radio personality has been indicted on charges of using stolen bank account information from the FCC, BARD COLLEGE and others in a $4.3 million forged check scheme, reports NEWSDAY. The 65-count indictment charges BRUCE BOND with forgery, attempted grand larceny, identity theft and other charges that allege he worked the scheme over the past 15 months with accomplices in NIGERIA and EUROPE.
The former afternoon drive-time talker for CUMULUS WNNK/HARRISBURG was arrested at his apartment on MAY 20th. UNITED PARCEL SERVICE had contacted authorities when it learned that BOND was using a shipping account that had been opened with a stolen credit card, prosecutors said.
BOND, an ALLENTOWN native, pleaded not guilty on FRIDAY in MANHATTAN's State Supreme Court. He was held in $250,000 bond and told to return to court JULY 23rd.
