$15K Theft at Local Bank Under Investigation

06-08-2006:

On Thursday, June 8, 2006, the First State Bank of Louise, Sweeny Branch, reported the loss of almost $15,000 at the alleged hands of a new customer.

 

Bank employees reported a new customer opened a checking account and then deposited two personal checks from another account.  The checks, in amounts of approximately $5,000 and $10,000, were returned to the bank unpaid because that account had been closed for several years. 

 

This case is under investigation as Theft, a State Jail Felony.

 


 

UPDATE:

 

On Monday, June 26, 2006, Bryan Matthew Carter, 34, of Sweeny, surrendered himself to the Sweeny Police Department on an outstanding warrant charging him with Theft, a State Jail Felony.  Carter was booked in at the West Columbia Police Department in lieu of $20,000 bond.
