Former Kinzers man wanted in theft case

Posted: Updated:

Police in Lancaster County are looking for a man who allegedly conned more than $800 from an elderly New Holland resident.

Steven Vanleer, 49, convinced the 85-year-old man to give him $835 to pay for items in storage and promised to pay the victim with his IRS refund, but he never gave back the money and never returned any calls or correspondence, police said.

Vanleer was charged with theft by deception, but constables who tried to serve an arrest warrant at his former address in Kinzers were told Vanleer no longer lives there and has left the area, police said.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call New Holland police at 717-354-4647.
