Ex-Lusby man admits stealing $250,000

November 11, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A former Lusby man pleaded guilty yesterday to stealing more than $250,000 in a credit-card scheme, with much of the money going toward his gambling problem, the Maryland attorney general's office reported.

David E. Williams, 32, admitted in Calvert County Circuit Court in Prince Frederick that he ran up bills on at least 27 credit cards from 15 different banks, the attorney general's office said.

To avoid paying the bills, Williams either reported that the charges were unauthorized or that they were fraudulently made by his unscrupulous cousin, the attorney general's office said. The cousin did not exist, authorities said.

Williams also obtained several credit cards by using the Social Security numbers of his children, the attorney general's office reported. Williams will be sentenced Jan. 6.
