Police are asking for assistance in finding a man accused of withdrawing money from a teenager's bank account after obtaining her debit card.


According to a Richmond County sheriff’s incident report, the Hephzibah girl, 17, notified police Oct. 9 after she realized her debit card was missing from her purse.

Investigator Dan Ferrel said the card had been used twice – on Sept. 29 and again on Oct. 3 – at a Sprint ATM on Windsor Spring Road to withdraw more than $300.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1020.

Dang

Somehow stealing from kids, churches, and the elderly just kinda seems even more wrong.

Hope they catch this thief soon,

Why

hasn't she closed her old account and opened a new one? Or at least changed her PIN?

She discovered the card

She discovered the card missing Oct. 9 which then she notified the police. The suspect used the card in Sept. and Oct. 3rd...no mention of it since Oct. 9 when she notified police so maybe she has closed the account.

How he got the pin? Most likely the card was removed from her wallet and somewhere she had the pin number written down on a piece of paper....could have been a new account and she was worried about forgetting the number or just being a teen and wrote it down not thinking about someone stealing it.
