Wrong photo, wrecked life

Woman talks about life after bank, police release wrong surveillance photo


Police said that on the afternoon of Oct. 15, an Amesbury woman reported her pocketbook was missing from her car, which was parked outside Latitudes Sports Club, 3 Ferry St., Bradford. The woman told police she’d placed her pocketbook on the floor behind the passenger seat, covered it with a sweatshirt then went inside the gym. She said she placed her car keys in a basket by the front lobby, which is near the front door to the gym.

After finishing at the gym at 5:30 p.m., she got her keys and drove back to her home in Amesbury, where she discovered her pocketbook containing her driver’s license, $100 cash and her “Sovereign” debit card was missing. After contacting her bank, she was told a $502 withdrawal was made at a Sovereign Bank in Methuen, and $502 was withdrawn from a Bank of America ATM in Haverhill. The woman subsequently cancelled her debit card, the report said.
