Manchester police: Strange activity by ATM leads to arrest for attempting to use stolen credit cards
MANCHESTER - A man is under arrest after police say he tried to use stolen credit cards.
A Manchester police officer was patrolling the area when he said he noticed strange behavior at an ATM at Saint Mary’s Bank.
The officer said the man was covering his face with a hooded sweatshirt while attempting to use the bank’s ATM machine.
John Keeley was confronted by the officer, and the resulting investigation led to the discovery of a social security card belonging to someone else in Keeley's pocket, and three credit cards in a nearby trash can - all with same name on them.
Police also said a blank prescription bottle with Penicillin pills was found on Keeley.
Keeley was charged with fraudulent use of a credit card (attempt), receiving stolen property, falsifying physical evidence, possession of controlled drugs and placed on a hold for a probation/parole violation.
The owner of the credit cards contacted the Manchester Police Department at 10:30 a.m. later that day to report his vehicle had been broken into during the overnight hours.
He said his car was parked on Goffstown Road in front of his residence, and reported that his wallet containing three credit cards and a social security card were missing, along with $10.00 cash and loose change.
