Imposter gets cash from Bank of Salem

Thursday, January 31, 2002

A 36-year-old Salem woman was arrested on felony charges Jan. 17 involving fraud by using the identity of another individual and withdrawing $5,500 from an account at Bank of Salem.

In a one-week period prior to her arrest, Robin Angela Davis allegedly made seven withdrawals from one of the bank's customer's checking account by using the drive-in window teller service.

According to Mark Montgomery, president of the bank, Davis was pretending to be someone else. He said Davis had all the correct identification the teller required for the cash withdrawals.

Montgomery said Davis had all the key information that the teller requested including birth dates, account numbers and correct names.

According to Salem Police Chief Albert Roork, Davis was arrested when criminal investigator Sgt. Mark Hollingsworth of the Arkansas State Police observed Davis during one of the incidents.

Roork said Davis is charged with seven counts of forgery in the second degree, a class C felony; one count of theft of property, a class B felony; two counts of theft of property, a class C felony; and four counts of theft of property, a class A misdemeanor.

Davis is being held on a $50,000 bond at the Independence County jail and is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 11.
