According to an Iowa City police complaint, Washington deposited a fraudulent check into a Hills Bank account of an unsuspecting person.

He took the debit or credit card of the witness and completed 15 transactions at various bank locations, causing a total loss of $2,222.64.

Washington was identified by the witness as the person that gave her the fraudulent deposit check and the person that took her card.

When the fraudulent check was returned, it caused a negative balance in the woman’s account, later incurred by Hills Bank.
