On Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at approximately 11:05 pm, a victim reported a unauthorized use of a debit card to the Milford Police Department, according to Milford Police Spokesman Mikhail Stanton.


Stanton said that the victim told officers they were notified by their bank of various suspicious transactions after realizing that they lost their card. Investigation by officers revealed that Jacob Ziegler 24, of Milford was reportedly the subject making those unauthorized transactions, said Stanton.
