Webster man steals $39K, faces more charges
Webster, N.Y. - New victims of bank account theft coming forward led to more charges against a Webster man.
Joseph Muller, 53, was charged with 59 counts of second-degree felony criminal possession of a forged instrument.
The charges stem from an ongoing criminal investigation that alleges Muller made personal checks on his home computer and made them payable to himself while withdrawing the funds from other people's bank accounts.
Muller also faces the following counts: two counts of felony third-degree grand larceny, one count of felony third-degree attempted grand larceny, one count of felony fourth-degree felony grand larceny, two counts of petit larceny, and two counts of attempted petit larceny.
The added charges are from six different victims who allege Muller stole approximately $39,173.73 from them between 2011 and 2013.
Muller had already been arrested and jailed on similar charges in September regarding one victim.
Muller was arraigned in the Town of Webster Court on these new charges and has been issued additional bail consisting of $50,000 cash or $50,000 secured bond.
