A fraudulent transaction at the First National Bank of Brookfield has triggered a police investigation.
According to Brookfield police, a male suspect entered the bank, presented identification with the name “Sue Snores,” requested a printout for an account, and later withdrew a significant amount of cash from the victim’s account, all with authorization obtained after a supervisor’s check.
The victim, who was not present at the scene, reported the unauthorized withdrawal after discovering a negative balance.
The victim is the owner of a construction company and uses this account for business transactions.
Police believed there is a possible link between the suspect and the victim’s general contractor, but no definitive evidence has been found.
Authorities are currently reviewing surveillance footage, check copies, and other evidence to identify the suspect and confirm involvement in this case.
An investigation is ongoing.
