(KAIR)--Financial crimes, involving an 80-year-old victim, send an Atchison man to jail.

According to a release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, 22-year-old Andrew Sinclair was arrested Monday on charges of unlawful computer acts, criminal use of a financial card, and theft.

Wilson, in the release, explains that police opened an investigation Monday after the “victim reported fraud involving her bank account.”
Investigators determined that on April 27 and April 28, “the unlawful transfer of bank funds, through the use of PayPal, had occurred to [the] victim's account.”

According to Wilson, that probe led to Sinclair being identified as the suspect in the crime, and he was located Monday afternoon, near 7th and Commercial Streets, and taken into custody.

Following his arrest, Sinclair was booked into the Atchison County Jail.
