HPD: Man arrested after stealing $100K from Redstone Federal Credit Union members


HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Authorities say a Birmingham man was arrested after stealing information from almost 150 Redstone Federal Credit Union members.

According to Huntsville Police (HPD), 31-year-old Allen Devon Rutledge of Birmingham was able to steal more than $100,000 from the 149 RFCU members. Rutledge also had 78 fraudulent cards on his person or in his car at the time of his arrest.

A federal grand jury indicted Rutlidge in July on six counts of fraud and two counts of counterfeiting.

The indictment states Rutledge came from Birmingham to the Huntsville area to commit the crimes, which involved Redstone Federal Credit Union, along with Regions, PNC, and Wells Fargo.

He was arrested for trafficking stolen identities, criminal tampering – encoded data fraud, possession of marijuana, and attempting to elude police.
