Arrest made at bank

Thursday, September 23, 2010

A San Francisco, Calif., woman spent the night in the Monett Jail awaiting charges in Barry County for attempting to use a fraudulent credit card at a Monett bank yesterday.

The suspect, whose name has not been released pending the filing of formal charges, entered the Bank of America branch in Monett around 1:40 p.m. yesterday and presented a driver's license that was determined to be fraudulent. She then presented a credit card in the same name, which was also believed to be fraudulent.

According to Police Chief Tim Schweder, the bank called police, who came to the scene. The subject was interviewed and arrested then transported to the city jail.

Schweder said the subject may not have been working alone. A similar incident was reported in Aurora yesterday.

Once charges are filed in Barry County Circuit Court, Schweder expected to transport the prisoner to the Barry County Jail in Cassville.

Although it was unusual to arrest someone claiming to reside in San Francisco, Schweder said it is not unusual for Monett officers to make arrests for possession and use of fraudulent or stolen credit cards.
