Police obtained bank records and surveillance photographs of the transaction. The identification used for the transaction had a man’s name, but the video showed a woman making the withdrawal
Police posted an image from the security video to a state database, the warrant said. A probation officer identified the woman as Leach, and told police she has a history of arrests for charges including larceny, identity theft and fraud.
