Bank teller helps foil suspected forgery
Police: Nichole Lyons had phony license in elderly woman's name
SAN ANTONIO – An alert bank teller is getting some of the credit for stopping woman from allegedly using a forged withdrawal slip to steal cash from an elderly woman's bank account.
San Antonio police said Nichole Lyons, 37, walked into a branch of Generations Federal Credit Union earlier this month and presented the teller with a withdrawal slip for $800, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
The affidavit stated that Lyons also showed the teller a driver's license which bore the same name as that on the bank account.
The teller, however, knew the account actually belonged to a 72-year-old woman who regularly visits the bank, the affidavit stated.
The teller notified a manager who called police. Lyons was arrested at the scene, but formal charges of fraudulent use of identifying information and forgery involving the elderly were filed Tuesday.
