A 32-year-old Great Falls man faces charges after prosecutors say he issued himself a debit card to the bank account of a recently deceased woman and used it to withdraw just over $200.
The Great Falls Tribune reports ( ) Aaron J. Brown is charged with felony deceptive practices and misdemeanor identity theft.
Prosecutors say Brown was working at a Wells Fargo branch where Zachary Torkelson and his sisters were handling their mother's estate after her Nov. 4 death.
The siblings canceled their mother's credit cards and Brown issued a temporary debit card.
Prosecutors say when Torkelson tried to use the card it was declined. He then spotted two transactions on Nov. 14 totaling $205.50 that he did not make.
An investigation found Brown reported Torkelson's card stolen and issued another card.
