Worker used company credit card to fund drug habit, cops say
A Palmer Township man spent nearly $900 in unauthorized purchases on a company credit card to support a drug habit, according to Colonial Regional police.
Keith A. Jumper, 26, of the 2300 block of Newlins Mill Road, had been employed with Fairfield Property Management as a maintenance worker between Sept. 17 to Oct. 5.
Police said Jumper received a Home Depot store credit card to make certain authorized purchases for his employer. He instead took the card and used it for personal use, later telling his employer he made the unauthorized purchases to support a drug addiction, according to court records.
Court records say purchases totaling $884 included $440 for a pair of line trimmers, $250 for a compressor and $192 for wood. The purchases were made on Sept. 17, Sept. 23, Oct. 1 and Oct. 5, police said.
Jumper is charged with receiving stolen property and theft. He was arraigned before District Judge Antonia Grifo, who set bail at $10,000 unsecured.
The judge ordered Jumper to be drug and alcohol free, submit to random drug and alcohol screens and have no contact with Fairfield Property Management, of Hanover Township, or Home Depot.
