Alleged Scam Artist Arrested, GPD Warns Residents Against Similar Scams

After investigating a series of scams that have taken place in the past several weeks, the Greenville Police Department obtained an arrest warrant and arrested 52 year old Randy L. (Briekler) Hofacker on February 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 sixty-five 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 at (937) S48-1103 if they have been victims to similar scams.
