The woman tried to withdraw money from a bank account using a stolen ID card.
BROCKTON – A city woman attempted to use another woman’s license to steal money out of a bank account Monday evening, police said.
Police responded to the Citizen’s Bank inside Stop and Shop, at 683 Belmont St., about 7:15 p.m. for a report of a woman attempting to commit fraud.
“The employees stated that a woman was trying to take money out of an account that didn’t belong to her,” said police Lt. William Hallisey.
Officers Lucas Pedro and Jose Rodrigues approached the woman, who was inside the supermarket, and she handed them an identification card.
“She pulled out an ID that was clearly not her, it didn’t look anything like her, and she stated that was her name,” Hallisey said.
The bank employees had noticed that the woman appeared different than the ID she provided, so they matched her signature on the withdrawal slip to the signature on the bank account.
“Her signature didn’t match the one on file for the person she had a stolen ID for,” Hallisey said.
The woman also had the victim’s notebook, which had the account’s savings, checking and routing numbers on it, Hallisey said.
While police were investigating the incident and trying to determined the suspect’s real name, the victim’s husband showed up at the bank to try and close the account.
“They must have had information that the card was being used, so he showed up to close the account,” Hallisey said.
The man was able to identify the woman to police as Janelle Moore.
“The victim’s husband, who knew the suspect, identified her,” Hallisey said.
It wasn’t clear how the suspect and victim knew each other and how the suspect apparently obtained the bank documents.
Moore, 30, of 46 Stephen Drive, Brockton, was arrested and charged with uttering a false document, larceny over $250, exhibiting another person’s license, using a stolen Registry of Motor Vehicles document, identity fraud and obstruction of justice. She also had a warrant.
Moore is expected to be arraigned Tuesday in Brockton District Court.
