Sharing a Debit Card 18 Oct 11

Leaving a debit card for a friend to get some movies ultimately resulted in a third party using the card to get over a hundred dollars from the victim’s bank account.

The victim contacted the Hutchinson Police Department on September 29th saying that she had left her debit card with a friend with the intent of purchasing movies. When the victim checked her bank account online later that day, she discovered a withdrawal of $102.52 had been made from an ATM at MidCountry Bank. The friend stated that she hadn’t used the debit card that day, and that her brother, a 34-year-old Darwin man who was also at the residence, had probably taken it.

Surveillance footage showed a man matching the suspect’s description using the debit card. The case has been forwarded to the City Attorney requesting charges of unauthorized use of a debit card.
