LOWER SALFORD PA – A 49-year-old Brooklyn woman is scheduled for a preliminary hearing July 19 (2017; Wednesday) after she was charged with more than 40 felony criminal counts in her recent arrest by township police. She’s accused of draining a local female resident’s bank and other accounts of more than $20,000, police said.
Lisa M. Rappa faces multiple counts of identity theft, forgery, theft, and receiving stolen property, according to a report in The Mercury newspaper. Reporter Michael Goldberg wrote that a warrant for her arrest had been issued in May; she was located and apprehended in late June after a joint investigation by township and New York City police. Rappa’s victim was not identified by name or home address.
Lower Salford officers traveled to Brooklyn courts and gained custody of Rappa when she waived extradition to Pennsylvania.
