GLENS FALLS - A South Glens Falls man was arrested Wednesday on charges he stole a bank debit card from his daughter and used it to make $566 in charges, police said.
Lemar R. Dean, 38, of Main Street was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a felony, and the misdemeanor of petit larceny, said Glens Falls Police Detective Sgt. Paul Frettoloso.
He is accused of taking a debit card that belonged to his daughter and using it at stores around the region in late August, Frettoloso said. He had indicated he believed he charged as much as $3,000 worth of items, but the victim said it was less than $600, police said.
Dean, who just got off parole for a 2005 burglary conviction in Warren County, was released pending prosecution in City Court.
Frettoloso and Glens Falls Police Detective Sgt. Peter Casertino handled the case.
