COLERAIN, OH (FOX19) - A woman has been arrested for allegedly trying to use a stolen identification card to take money from a bank account.
Officers were dispatched to the U.S. Bank in the 8200 block of Colerain Ave. on a report that Ashley Morton was trying to use a stolen Kentucky ID card to withdraw $2,200 from an account.
Bank employees knew there was a fraud alert on the account.
As employees were taking a long time to complete the request, Morton became suspicious and left the bank without any money.
A Colerain officer spotted her leaving the bank at a high rate of speed and attempted to stop her. A pursuit ensued and Morton crashed her vehicle at the intersection of West Galbraith and Blue Rock Road. She was caught as she tried to exit her vehicle.
