Two women suspected of attempting to use a stolen driver's license and ATM card were able to avoid arrest after a brief chase.
Upper Arlington police were called to a bank in the 2000 block of West Henderson Road at 3:04 p.m. Nov. 21 after a bank employee noticed a woman using a withdrawal slip to obtain $1,000 presented a driver's license and ATM card that didn't belong to her.
According to police, the employee recognized that the driver's license and ATM card belonged to a friend of his, not to either of the women in the vehicle who requested the withdrawal.
After the women realized the transaction wouldn't be authorized, they fled in their vehicle onto Henderson Road and later to Pemberton Drive and Kenny Road, where they were able to elude an Upper Arlington patrol officer, reports said.
Bank staff members later reported they contacted a relative of the victim in the case, and he informed them his relative's driver's license and ATM card had been stolen recently from her vehicle.
Police were unable to identify the suspects, but described the driver as a woman in her 20s and the passenger as a woman who was approximately 20 years old.
Police also are investigating a report of a similar attempted transaction at a bank branch in the Kingsdale Center to see if surveillance video might help identify the suspects.
