A Lehigh County man who spent big bucks at Tattletales Gentleman’s Club in Bath tricked his credit card company into refunding his card about $7,400, according to police.
Robert L. Tostevin Jr., 54, of Allentown was arraigned by District Judge John Capobianco and charged with theft of services - acquisition of services -- a third-degree felony. He is free on $5,000 unsecured bail.
Colonial Regional Police say Tostevin used his credit card on July 16 and 17 to purchase $7,400 worth of private, exotic dances.
Tostevin later filed a report with his credit card company, stating he made one purchase, which totaled $100. All of the other purchases, Tostevin allegedly said, were fraudulent.
The money was refunded to his credit card.
Tattletales management and employees, however, called Tostevin's bluff. According to police, the club said the purchases were made by Tostevin and were not fraudulent.
