Police Bulletinwoman charged in bank scam
A local woman faces multiple charges after allegedly finding a purse and trying to open an account using the woman's name.
Dawn Nicole Anderson, 35, of Pleasanton was arrested Oct. 15 on charges of forgery, burglary, identity theft and giving false ID to police.
Pleasanton police Lt. Scott Rohovit said the incident occurred at the Bank of America on Stoneridge Drive at around 5:30 p.m. Rohovit said bank workers became suspicious of the woman's identity and called police.
The charge of burglary, he said, came from entering the bank with the intent to commit a crime.
Two other recent burglaries remain under investigation.
In one, which occurred between 5 p.m. Oct. 11 and 9:30 a.m. Oct. 12, $2,400 in cash and a 37-inch flat screen television were stolen from Mission Expert Nails in the 1900 block of Santa Rita Road. A police report said the front door had been pried open.
In the second, which took place between 6:30 p.m. Oct. 16 and 8:30 a.m. Oct. 18, two video projectors worth more than $4,600 were taken from Precision System Science in the 5600 block of West Las Positas Boulevard. A police report said a lock punch was used on the front door.
