Hofacker faces Theft From an Elderly Person charges

GREENVILLE – After investigating a series of scams that have taken place over the past several weeks, the Greenville Police Department obtained an arrest warrant and arrested 52-year old Randy L. (Brickler) Hofacker on Feb. 22, 2013. Hofacker is suspected of and booked into the Darke County Jail on one count of theft from an elderly person. The Ohio Revised Code defines an elderly person as: “Elderly person” means a person who is 65 years of age or older.

Several reports were filed with the Greenville Police Department where a subject would come to the victim’s residence and obtain money regarding repairs to their house, money for gas for a vehicle, money for a flat tire, money to get a vehicle out of a ditch, or assist them in cashing a check and then keeping the cash.

Citizens are urged to not loan money to people asking to borrow money if they don’t personally know them and to contact the Greenville Police Department, 548-1103, if they have been victims to similar scams.
