ATM Card Left Behind, DCF'er Helps Himself: Cops

You could say a DCF supervisor was in the right place at the right time.  Or, you could say he broke the law.  Police have chosen the latter, saying he stole money by using a debit card that was left in a machine.

When Jeffrey Gold, 33, pulled up to an ATM in January, there was an ATM card in the machine that had not “timed out” yet, police said. So, Gold used the card and helped himself to $100, police said.

The cameras that watch everything we do at ATMs snapped a shot of him, police said, and a detective happened to recognize Gold because they both attend child advocacy meetings.

Gold turned himself in Monday. He was charged with illegally using a credit card and misdemeanor larceny.

He is a supervisor in the Department of Children and Families' office in Manchester.

Gold posted $500 bail and is due in court April 23. He did not immediately return a message the Associated Press left at his office Wednesday.
