A Grove City man was arrested after filing a false report claiming someone had stolen money from his bank account, according to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office.
On June 15, Scott Douglas Jury contacted deputies to report his bank account was overdrawn because someone had withdrawn money from his account without his permission.
Jury told deputies he believed his son was responsible because he had the pin number to the account.
Jury said he filed a claim with the bank to be reimbursed for the $1,515 that was taken from his account, but that was denied and he needed an official sheriff's office report.
Deputies began the process of getting the photos from the bank ATM where the transactions in question were made, reports said.
On September 6, Jury went to deputies again to report fraudulent activity on another of his accounts. He again said he believed his son was to blame, reports said.
Deputies then showed Jury the photos taken by the ATM for each transaction he said was fraudulent during his first report. The ATM photos showed Jury withdrew the money, according to reports.
Jury said he didn't remember making any of the withdrawals, but later said he used the money to pay bills and purchase illegal prescription drugs, reports said.
Jury was arrested and charged with filing a false report.
