Police: At least 4 used stabbing victim’s credit card

Authorities say more than one person used a credit card that belonged to a New Cumberland man who was fatally stabbed under the Walnut Street Bridge in Harrisburg.

A police source told ABC 27 News that at least four people used Richard McQuown’s card after he was attacked.

The investigator said a homeless man arrested this week, 47-year-old Michael Cleland, was the first to use the card, but at least three others used it after afterwards.

Cleland allegedly made purchases totaling more than $270 at the Hess gas station on the corner of Cameron and Market streets. He was charged this week with three counts each of forgery, access device fraud and theft after police said he was identified through the store’s security video.

Cleland is being held as a “person of interest” and remains in the Dauphin County Prison on $250,000 bail.

McQuown, 41, was last seen by friends at around 10:15 p.m. Friday after visiting several downtown bars.

More than 12 hours later, just after 10:30 a.m. Saturday, he was found on the riverfront walk under the bridge and rushed to a hospital where he died.

Investigators want to hear from anyone who may have seen McQuown. He was wearing a blue Cleveland Indians baseball jersey with the name “Vaughn” and the number 99, and his last last known location was MoMo’s BBQ and Grill on Market Street.

Anyone with information should call Harrisburg police at 717-255-3118 or 717-255-3170.
