Local entrepreneur Dr. Allan Xu was presented with a formal township proclamation by Police Chief David Duffy in recognition of his $50,000 donation to the Upper Gwynedd Police Department, writes Dan Sokil for North Penn Life.

The founder of Keystone Bioanalytica made the donation after the police department solved a financial fraud case that cost his business $830,825.

The case was assigned to Detective Ray Royds, whose investigative work resulted in an arrest by the FBI in New York and the recovery of all the funds.  However, the federal authorities have yet to release any details as it is an ongoing investigation.

Meanwhile Duffy feels Detective Royds deserves more credit for the arrest than the federal investigators.

“Once they saw the work my detective did, in typical federal fashion, they took the case,” he said. “But seriously, they did a good job, and we cooperate with our federal partners all the time.”

Last month, Xu approached the department to make the donation, and despite being told twice it was not necessary he went ahead anyway.

“These donated funds will be used primarily for continuation of several community programs,” said Duffy.
