Santo Domingo.- The Police reports the arrest of a man who had been on the run since last December. He is accused of online fraud after allegedly swindling RD$950,000 from a banking institution via the Internet Banking system.
Roberto Antonio Paulino (El Gringo) was arrested in Cristo Rey during a raid Wednesday by agents of the Department of Investigations of High Technology Crimes (DICAT).
The police report says that the intelligence services located the fugitive in a house on Félix Evaristo Mejía Street, in an area known as El Bronx in the Cristo Rey neighborhood, where the arrest took place in fulfillment of court order 0400, dated 16th December 2013.
The agents found two bank cards and a Nokia cellphone in Paulino’s possession. The transactions and phone calls will be examined in order to establish whether they were used for any other fraudulent operations.
