The theft was reported to police on Nov. 11 when they met the account holder at the Bank of Guam and were informed of the fraudulent credit card use.

Jerrold Marck Springs was arrested after going on a week-long spree of withdrawing money from his girlfriend’s mother’s account, according to court documents.

The theft was reported to police on Nov. 11 when they met the account holder at the Bank of Guam and were informed of the fraudulent credit card use.

Police say the bank conducted an investigation and provided photographs of Springs withdrawing money from a Bank of Guam ATM.

A total of $2,090.00 was withdrawn between Nov. 3 and Nov. 9.

Police spoke with Spring’s girlfriend and her mother, both of whom said that he was never given permission to use the card.

On Dec. 27, police met with Springs who told them that he and his girlfriend were told to go and pull out money “as much as you need.” Springs added that he and his girlfriend were given the card a couple more times withdrawing $300, $400 and $500 dollars.

The cardholder, however, told police that she has only ever given the card to her daughter to withdraw $20.

Springs was arrested and charged with fraudulent use of a credit card as a 3rd-degree felony and aggravated theft as a 2nd-degree felony.

He was booked and confined.
