He allegedly withdrew $200 out of Rhonda R. Lundermans account without her permission on June 22 from a Seacomm account and another $142 from that same account at Rays Place on June 23.
According to court documents, Lunderman and Misty Timmons took a third woman Saturday to Burlington, Vt., where the unidentified womans husband was being treated at the Fletcher-Allen Medical Center.
Ms. Lunderman said when she reached Rouses Point she realized she had left her wallet at home.

Misty called Andy, and he said he would be willing to help us out, she noted in her statement to police.
She said she told Post how to get into her residence, the location of her wallet and the code he would need to use to withdraw money from her account on her debit card. She said she asked Post to withdraw $240 from her account and wire it to her. She indicated that transaction was completed.
But she said when she returned home she discovered the balance in her account was over $300 lower than she anticipated and noticed the two unauthorized withdrawals.
