A 44-year-old woman was arrested after using phony identification at a bank while trying to withdraw $6,500 from an account, police said.
Darien police provided this further account of the incident, including accusations not proven in court:
When asked for identification, the woman, a New London resident, gave a New Jersey driver’s license to a bank teller, who determined it was phony. The woman then left the bank.
Police were called to the bank at 55 Post Road and the first officer on the scene arrived there at 12:39 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 20. That officer found the woman in the parking lot and spoke to her.
While talking to police, perhaps in response to a police officer’s question (the police announcement didn’t say), she said that she had the crack pipe with her, possibly in her bag. She said she left the identification card at the bank.
Police charged the woman, Nicole Brayman (whose 44th birthday is today, Jan. 23), with possession of narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia, criminal impersonation, third-degree identity theft, criminal attempt to commit third-degree larceny and attempted use of a stolen credit card.
Brayman was released on payment of 7% of a $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear Feb. 2 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
