Daniel Flash walked into the First Capital Federal Credit Union office in York County last Friday applied for a membership and a $25,000 loan. He claimed to live in Ohio, but work locally. He could not tell the name of the friend who referred him to First Capital nor why he had certain items on his credit report. His pay stub also had inconsistencies.

To a Member Service Officer working with Flash it all added up to too many red flags. He was asked to come back a few days later to sign paperwork. After Flash left, First Capital contacted Springettsbury Township. The credit union and police decided to setup a sting operation.

Flash returned on Tuesday to complete the paperwork. Once he signed the papers, he was arrested. Charges include Criminal Identity Theft and Forgery. Following arraignment he was sent to York County Prison in lieu of $250,000 bail.
