GLASSBORO, N.J. (AP) - Police in southern New Jersey say nine Rowan University students stole thousands of dollars by using college debit cards to make bogus returns at a convenience store.

Glassboro police say the students were using their university debit cards to make merchandise returns resulting in the loss of $35,000 at a 7-Eleven store. Rowan officials reported suspicious financial activity at the store, prompting the investigation.

Investigators say student and store employee 21-year-old Kwadwo Brefo-Boateng was crediting his and his friends’ accounts. Authorities say the Lindenwold man had entered numerous merchandise returns, resulting in bogus credits to the accounts.

Brefo-Boatening and eight other students face theft charges in the case.

It’s unclear if they have attorneys who could comment on the charges.
