A dentist with troubles of his own is the complainant in another felony case with thousands of dollars missing from a Bellefonte business.
According to the criminal complaint filed by Bellefonte police, an investigation began into a reported theft at the Bellefonte Family Dentistry. A detective met in Februrary 2016 with owner Wade Newman, who advised that he was alerted to a situation where checks, deposits and insurance payments were not adding up to the end of day total balances.
Newman told the investigator he had compared deposits against dental work being done versus the money deposited in the bank and found discrepancies, police said. He also provided paperwork to the police detailing the differences.
Newman conducted a larger audit, police said, which concluded that Noll “failed to properly carry out her duties as office manager, and engaged in a theft scheme, where Noll would remove cash from the business and cover the theft by substituting checks written by other patients.”
Newman reportedly provided police with the 25-page report which showed $46,883 was taken from the business from January 2014 through December 2015.
Officers spoke with Noll in November 2016 at which time she
was informed there was an audit of the business indicating a large amount of money had been taken, police said, and a was suspected of ordering a “larger than normal” order of Tramadol — a narcotic used to treat pain — through Newman’s federal drug ID.
Noll allegedly admitted ordering the Tramadol for herself, police said. Three misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance and three more of procuring a controlled substance have been made through the state attorney general’s office in a separate filing. Bail in that case is set at $50,000 unsecured.
When confronted about the missing money, Noll said she had been going through some difficult times and started taking small amounts of cash to pay bills, police said. She reportedly would hold cash deposits, then use insurance checks to pay back the cash she had kept earlier.
Then she claimed it “it got out of hand,” according to police. She reported she had no idea exactly when she started the activity or how much was taken.
Noll provided police with statements regarding both the missing money and the Tramadol, police said.
Noll was arraigned and charged with one felony count of theft by unlawful taking, court documents said. Unsecured bail was set at $100,000 and she waived a preliminary hearing on the matter on Wednesday. The case now moves to the county Court of Common Pleas and toward trial.

Here is a different way to carry out identity theft:
COLUMBUS (WCMH) – The Franklin County Grand Jury has returned a 33-count RICO indictment against four suspects on charges that include theft, identity fraud, and breaking and entering.
A press release from the Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney’s office says that Jonathan Charles Knapp, 35, and Justin Lee Goins, 26, stole information out of storage units at two separate storage locations and then opened credit cards in the stolen individuals names. The indictment also names Frank M. Abrams II, 47, and Gary Ronald Smith Jr., 39, for one count each of fraud and theft.
According to the release, Knapp and Goins rented out storage units at Simply Self-Storage and Westerville Mini Storage and, once inside, began breaking in to other storage units.
The release says that the two men not only obtained thousands of patient files from a local dentist office, they also obtained hundreds of documents from a company that prepared taxes and restored credit.
The information obtained was then used to open credit cards and lines of credit under the stolen names.
The release also alleges that a vehicle was stolen from a local Ford dealership by one of the suspects using an illegally-obtained drivers license.
Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney Ron O’Brien lauded several police departments and organizations responsible for their roles in the investigation.
The indictment says that Knapp has received seven counts of identity fraud, seven counts of identity fraud against a person in a protected class, two counts of breaking and entering and grand theft, five counts of theft, and one count of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity.
Justin Lee Goins received three counts of identity fraud and theft, and one count of grand theft, grand theft of a motor vehicle, and engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity.
