A man has been charged with multiple cash machine thefts from elderly people

 

A man from London has been arrested and charged in connection with a series of cash machine thefts from elderly people in Medway and north Kent.

On Monday, July 25, 2022, less than two hours after the most recent incident, officers tracked a suspicious car to an area near Dartford and apprehended the suspect.

At 2.50pm, Kent Police were called to a report that a 79-year-old woman had been approached while using a cash machine in Cuxton Road, Strood. The suspect allegedly distracted the victim and stole her bank card, which he then used to withdraw money.

The Medway Community Policing Team tracked and followed a suspicious Ford Focus after it was identified by police. It was eventually stopped with the help of the Chief Constable’s Crime Squad near the A2, where a passenger was arrested and taken into custody.

An investigation revealed four more victims, all in their 70s and 80s, who had their bank cards stolen while using cash machines in Gravesend, Strood, and Chatham. These offences occurred between July 21 and July 25. Daniel Baah, 25, of Stratford’s Durban Road, was charged with five counts of theft and ten counts of fraud by false representation (in relation to the stolen cards being used to withdraw money). He was remanded in custody and will appear in Medway Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, July 27.

Anyone with information that could help the investigation should call Kent Police at 01634 792209 and reference 46/XY/15370/22. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously at 0800 555111 or use their website’s online form.
