Columbia County authorities are a looking for a Martinez restaurant owner accused of financial identity fraud.
Gregory A. Glover, 45, the owner of St. Louis Burgers on Furys Ferry Road, is accused of trying to use someone else’s Social Security number to open a bank account.
On Aug. 16, the manager of First Bank at 375 Furys Ferry Road told authorities that Glover, of Valhalla Drive in Martinez, tried to use a Sylvester, Ga., woman’s Social Security number to open a business account at the Martinez bank, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report.
Glover opened business accounts at the bank in 2004 and 2007 under the name Southern Builders & Land Developers. He was listed as the owner and signer for the business.
The manager said she called Glover and told him she had found a Social Security number that didn’t match the one he had used to open the previous accounts. Glover told the manager that he had the two previous accounts at the bank and that bank personnel must have made an error with his Social Security number in the setup of those accounts, according to the report. He then quoted the fraudulent number as his own.
The manager verified that the number Glover provided belongs to the Sylvester, Ga., woman and denied Glover a new account at the bank. She then called police.
Glover is known to frequent Evans Fitness Center in Evans and West Lake subdivision.
Anyone with information about Glover’s whereabouts is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (706) 541-2800.
