Decatur police have charged a woman after she tried to get a cash advance using what credit union personnel believed to be a fraudulent credit card, according to police.

The woman presented a police officer with a Florida driver’s license and identified herself as Alia Banks, but a check of the license showed it was not on file, police said. After inquiries with Florida officials, it was determined that the license didn’t exist and was forged, police said.

After submitting the woman’s fingerprints to the FBI to verify her identity, it was learned she was Minerva Perez, 31, address unknown, according to police.

Credit cards found in her possession, bearing the name Alia Banks, were determined to be fraudulent, police said in a release.

Perez was charged with two counts of encoded data fraud, second-degree possession of a forged instrument and obstructing justice by using a false identify, police said. She was booked into Morgan County Jail with bail totaling $60,300, with $60,000 of the bail amount to be made with cash, police said.
