Employee charged with altering credit card transactions at Rehoboth business


Michael J. Maricle, 48 of Lewes was arrested earlier this month on multiple counts of falsifying business records at his place of employment on North First Street in Rehoboth Beach.

Officers were called to the business when a customer had returned to ask about a discrepancy between their receipt and the actual amount charged to their bank card. The manager was able to locate 41 altered transactions handled by Maricle between August 28th and October 7th.

During the investigation, Maricle admitted to officers to altering receipts. He was charged with forty-one counts of falsifying business records, which are misdemeanors. He was released on $8,200 unsecured bond.

The identity of the business was not disclosed.
