PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — One of the two people suspected of stealing thousands of dollars from a GoFundMe campaign set up to benefit a Philadelphia homeless man is in custody in Burlington County on unrelated charges.

Mark D'Amico was picked up Monday night by police in Florence Township, Burlington County, on an outstanding warrant not connected to the Johnny Bobbitt case, according to a posting on Facebook from the police department.

The posting indicates he was processed on the warrants and taken to the Burlington County jail. 

D'Amico and girlfriend Kate McClure are being investigated by the county prosecutor after Bobbitt sued in an attempt to gain access to what's left of a $400,000 GoFundMe account the couple opened on Bobbitt's behalf.

At issue is what has happened to that money. Both sides dispute what's been given to Bobbitt and a judge has put the civil case on hold for three months while the criminal probe continues.

No criminal charges have been filed against McClure or D'Amico.
