Garvin County Woman Accused Of Stealing From Mom To Help Boyfriend
Gan Matthews, News 9
PAULS VALLEY, Oklahoma -- Authorities in Garvin County have charged a woman with raiding her mother's bank account so she could bail out her boyfriend.
Investigators said 29-year-old Kassey Brown pretended to be her mother when she called a Pauls Valley bank in December and asked for $8,000 to be transferred from a savings to a checking account.
"Within ten minutes of that telephonic transfer, we know that a forged check was cashed for that same amount, $8,000," Garvin County Sheriff Larry Rhodes said.
Rhodes believed Brown used the money to bond out her boyfriend, 37-year-old Warren Bradley, who was awaiting trial for assault.
Brown and Bradley were arrested together on New Year's Eve. According to court documents, Brown has admitted forging the check with her mother's signature.
