Sioux Falls Woman Charged with Identity Theft
A Sioux Falls woman was arrested after she allegedly found a lost wallet and then tried to withdraw money from the owner's bank account.
"Somebody had taken money from her account," Police Spokesman Sam Clemens told us. "The bank ended up flagging the account as having a potential for identity theft. On Monday afternoon, a car went through the Federal Credit Union and used this woman's identification and social security cards in an effort to get a thousand dollars from the woman's account."
That's when the bank called police who then arrested 28-year-old Heather Lowe---charging her with identity theft and possession of stolen property. Lowe also faces drug charges after a small bag in her vehicle tested positive for cocaine.
Clemens says the lost wallet was found inside Lowe's vehicle.
