A Florida woman is accused of trying to withdraw money from a bank in Spotsylvania County using someone else’s identity, police say.
Employees at the Wells Fargo bank in the 10400 block of Courthouse Road alerted authorities about a suspicious person trying to get money from the bank Friday afternoon, said Capt. Jeff Pearce of the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office.
When deputies arrived, they found that the woman had several different driver’s licenses, credit cards and checks, Pearce said.
Maria Ann Flood, 22, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is charged with three counts of identity theft, four counts of forgery and uttering, two counts of attempting to obtain money by false pretenses, possession of stolen checks, possession of stolen driver’s licenses and one count of possession of a stolen credit card.
She was also being sought by Fredericksburg police, who were investigating a similar complaint earlier Friday at a Wells Fargo bank in the city.
Flood is facing 10 charges in Fredericksburg, which include forgery, felony identity theft with intent to defraud and attempting to obtain $1,700 under false pretenses, according to police records.
She was scheduled to appear in Fredericksburg General District Court Monday morning.
No court date has been set in Spotsylvania yet.
She is being held without bond at Rappahannock Regional Jail.
