⚪ Two NJ men are busted for stealing $80K from a bank account

⚪ Funds were taken from a Bridgewater resident of an assisted living facility

⚪ The resident's bank tipped off police to suspicious activity

A pair of men from Hunterdon County were busted after law enforcement said over $80,000 was stolen from the bank account of an assisted living resident in Bridgewater.

Sanders J. Mishkin and Ronald Cusano, both 65 and from Lambertville, were arrested on June 14, stemming from the stolen funds.

The assisted living facility was contacted by the bank, regarding suspicious account activity, according to Somerset County Prosecutor John McDonald.

Investigators found that Mishkin withdrew the cash from a resident’s account without permission — and that at least $10,000 of the money was then linked to transactions by Cusano.
