A man sought by police for using a stolen debit card has been arrested and charged.
On May 25, a man called police to report that he had been a victim of a debit card fraud. The man was using his debit card in a drive-through ATM machine at a bank in the 300 block of Pleasant Street in Dartmouth when the machine appeared to take his card. He entered the bank to seek assistance from a bank employee and when he returned to the machine, he discovered his card was missing and an undisclosed amount of money had been withdrawn from his account without his consent.
This morning, police released pictures of the suspect taken from video surveillance. Earlier today, a man contacted police after seeing the pictures on a local TV station and recognizing himself. He was later arrested without incident at his Pleasant Street residence and brought back to police headquarters where he was interviewed.
The 56-year-old Dartmouth man was released from custody. He will appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court on September 8 to face charges of theft under $5,000 and theft of credit card.
