Fraud arrest at bank
Placeholder Image
A woman using a phony identification card was arrested Thursday afternoon at a bank for fraud and cocaine possession.
Shortly after 2 p.m. Thursday the Chase bank branch at 2951 Countryside Dr. contacted the Turlock Police Department to report their suspicions about a woman trying to withdraw $6,000 from an account. The bank suspected she had a fraudulent identification card.
Officers made contact with the suspect and found her to be in possession of a very realistic, but ultimately fraudulent California identification card. According to the police report, the card was in the name of the account holder that the suspect was trying to withdraw the money from.
The suspect was eventually identified as Jody Pillar, 58. A search of her purse also turned up a substance believed to be cocaine.
