One of the things that gave her away, according to police, was the phony I.D. that the 53-year-old woman was trying to use to withdraw $2,300 from a bank. That I.D., like the account she was trying to withdraw the money from, had a man’s name on it. Darien police gave this account of what happened, including accusations not proven in court:
Sometime before 4:24 p.m., on Wednesday, April 14, Banetta Grant, 53, of the Bronx entered TD Bank at 55 Post Road and tried to withdraw money from an account. A bank employee became suspicious because Grant, a female, was trying to withdraw money under the name of the account holder, a male. Suspicions were only heightened when the ID that Grant provided had the account-holder’s name on it— and especially when Grant couldn’t answer basic questions from the employee.
