Ephrata Woman Charged with Fraud and Theft

On Wednesday, May 29, 2024, the Ephrata Police Department brought charges against 38-year-old Megan L. Riggs, a former employee of the Ephrata Performing Arts Center (EPAC). Riggs, a resident of Elizabethtown, PA, faces one count of Access Device Fraud, classified as a felony, and one count of Theft by Deception, a misdemeanor.

The investigation, which began in August 2023, revealed that Riggs allegedly made unauthorized purchases and wrote several checks for personal expenses using an EPAC credit card. These transactions, which occurred between July 2021 and August 2022, totaled $2,840.71. Riggs had been employed by EPAC until August 2022, and the discrepancies were reported to the police following unsuccessful attempts by EPAC staff to resolve the issue directly with her.

Riggs was arraigned on the day of her arrest and was released on a $5,000 unsecured bail. The arraignment was overseen by Judge Torrey Landis at the Ephrata Courthouse, located at 320 Cocalico St., Ephrata, PA.

As the legal process moves forward, it is important to remember that Riggs is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
