Danny L. Iverson, 54, Clintonville, was charged with one count of felony theft, three counts of misdemeanor theft and one count of attempted theft.
On Oct. 24, the Associated Bank branch in Embarass received a call from a man claiming to be one of their customers. The caller asked that Iverson be allowed to make withdrawals from his account. He said he was in Milwaukee under house arrest with an ankle bracelet and was unable to obtain the money himself.
A manager reviewed the request and returned the man’s call, giving permission over the phone for the withdrawals.
Iverson allegedly went to the branch office and made withdrawals on Aug. 21 for $3,500, Aug. 28 for $2,000, Sept. 4 for $1,500 and Sept. 23 for $1,700.
The bank later received a call from another man claiming to be the customer. This man complained that large amounts had been withdrawn from his account without his permission.
On Nov. 13, the Embarass branch manager called the phone number they had on record and spoke to a man who claimed to be the customer. The man said he was sending Iverson to the bank again to make another withdrawal.
According to the criminal complaint, when Iverson attempted to make a fifth withdrawal for $3,985, Detective Sgts. Jim Gorman and John Mocadlo were waiting in the parking lot and arrested him as he left the bank.
Iverson told the investigators that he had worked with the victim for more than 30 years and knew several personal details about him, such as his Social Security number, birth date and address, the complaint says.
Iverson allegedly used the money for paying bills and gambling at the casino.
