DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE OF CHESTER COUNTY
Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan announced that defendant Jack Mayer, who fled Chester County criminal charges to hide in Europe and the Dominican Republic, has been captured and returned to Chester County. The defendant was charged in 2011 by the Downingtown Police Department with stealing over $200,000 from an elderly victim. The defendant recently was located in the Dominican Republic, deported back to the United States, and now is in custody at Chester County Prison.
District Attorney Hogan stated, “This defendant was preying on elderly and vulnerable victims. His crimes are appalling and his flight was further evidence of his consciousness of guilt. We would have gone to the moon to bring this defendant to justice. We will not allow con artists to target the older citizens of Chester County.”
Downingtown Police Chief James McGowan stated, “This is an excellent example of law enforcement working together both nationally and internationally. Our officers and prosecutors worked diligently with their counterparts to bring the defendant back to Chester County to face charges. They should be commended for their professionalism and perseverance.” Read more »
