MDI woman charged with stealing $52,000 using bad checks

BAR HARBOR, Maine — Police in this Mount Desert Island town have arrested a restaurant owner who is accused of stealing $52,000 by writing several fraudulent checks.
Jennifer Lozano, 41, was arrested Tuesday on class B charges of theft by deception and negotiating a worthless instrument, according to police. Conviction for a class B crime is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.

Lozano is the owner of the Parkside Restaurant on the corner of Mount Desert and Main streets and of Best of Bar Harbor, a retail business in the same building. Lozano does not own the building where the businesses are located.

According to police, Lozano is accused of stealing the funds late last month by writing several bad checks for several thousand dollars each with one bank account, depositing them in a checking account at a second bank, and then quickly withdrawing the unsupported funds from the second bank. The transactions took place at Ellsworth bank branches late last month, Bar Harbor police Sgt. David Kerns said Tuesday.

In all, Lozano is accused of stealing $52,099.28 from Camden National Bank, according to police. She did not withdraw all the $54,000 she allegedly wrote fraudulent checks for, according to police.

$124,000 --- Brick Street Rockland Maine 04841

Not bad....

Still a little pricey. Its' right in the South End and close to a bar. But not bad. We know several families in the area and they like the neighborhood. An easy walk to the ocean and downtown.

I would probably offer $95k and walk away.
