FORMER GENERAL MANAGER OF TRAVEL AGENCY CONVICTED OF FELONY THEFT

Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Rebecca Calimer Price, age 30, presently residing in Greencastle, Pennsylvania, was convicted of five counts of felony theft after a trial in the Circuit Court for Washington County. The three-day court trial was before the Honorable Donald E. Beachley. During the trial, the Court heard evidence that from January, 1999 through February, 2000, Price stole over twenty-three thousand dollars ($23,000) from five customers of CW Travel, Inc. Price convinced the victims to pay her in cash and in checks made out to her personally by marketing trips and airfare at far below their actual cost. Price then converted the monies to her own personal use or to other business purposes, and the victims did not receive their travel.

The case was investigated by the Maryland State Police and was prosecuted by the Office of the Attorney General, Criminal Investigations Division. It was referred to the Criminal Investigations Division by the Hagerstown Police Department.

The maximum penalty for each count of felony theft is 15 years and up to a $1,000.00 fine, plus restitution. Sentencing will be scheduled in approximately six weeks.
