Willmar, Minn., man faces fraud charge, charged more than $6,700 on stolen credit card
WILLMAR -- Joshua Wayne Roschild, 22, of Willmar, made his first appearance Wednesday on a felony charge of financial transaction card fraud for allegedly using a stolen credit card to purchase more than $6,700 in fuel.
He was released on his personal recognizance. His next appearance is July 22 in Kandiyohi County District Court.
According to the complaint, officials from Dooley's Petroleum reported on April 1 that there had been unauthorized use of a company credit card, which had been missing since January from a company truck.
The card had been used for a total of $6,724.10 in purchases from area gas stations and a gas station in Hastings. Investigators reviewed video surveillance footage from one local station and identified Roschild as the person making the purchases.
Investigators interviewed three people who said Roschild purchased gas for them on multiple occasions. They said that Roschild told them that his father had given him the card and that it was OK to use it to buy gas. One of the individuals said Roschild told him he found the card in a vehicle parked behind Dooley's that had been started and left to warm up.
When he was interviewed by law enforcement, Roschild denied ever having the credit card.
