LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been arrested after police say he used mobile banking to steal thousands of dollars from multiple Kroger stores.
Police say 34-year-old Boma Robert Spero-Jack went into several different Kroger stores and purchased at least 32 Western Union money orders. Each money order was issued for an amount between $195 and $500, according to an arrest report.
Police say he would then, "leave the store and deposit the money order into his Bank of America checking or savings account, via a mobile deposit."
Spero-Jack would then go back into the Kroger and "cash" the same money order, according to the arrest report.
Later, police say he would withdraw the amount of the money order from his bank account.
Spero-Jack stole a total of $12,620 via the scheme, according to police. He was charged with theft by unlawful taking.
