Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department Newton Area Burglary detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect who used a stolen ATM card and pin number to withdraw a 97-year-old victim’s entire life savings which amounted to over $46,000.

Between August 16, 2009, and November 30, 2009, the suspect used the stolen ATM card at the Bank of America located on the 100 block of Rosecrans Avenue in the City of Gardena, and the Bank of America on the 300 block of E. Manchester Boulevard in the City of Inglewood.  According to bank records, the suspect withdrew $300 to $500 per day between the hours of  1 p.m. and 2 p.m., alternating between the two locations.

The suspect is described as a male Black, 25 to 30-years-old, stands about 5 feet 9 inches tall with black hair, brown eyes, and weighs about 170 to 180 pounds.  The suspect was driving a silver or grey 2000 to 2003 Mercedes Benz C230 Coupe.
