A former bank manager’s claim that he couldn’t remember how he spent more than $547,000 that he’d stolen from elderly customers didn’t sit well with a Bucks County judge in Doylestown Monday.
Joseph G. Policare, 58, of Quakertown told Judge Jeffrey Finley he didn’t buy anything expensive or memorable with the cash, which he stole over 10 years.
“I was living a dream, what I thought to be a modest life,” Policare said. “Just not being the person I should be.”
Finley wasn’t satisfied. He pressed Policare, saying he couldn’t accept his explanation.
