    Police say a northern Idaho man has been arrested for using the bank card of a woman who hasn’t been seen since early March.

    The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that Jordan Jarrad Law of Kelso Lake was arrested Wednesday. He is accused of having used a bank card belonging to his former girlfriend and roommate, 54-year-old Rae Allison Berwanger, in the days after her disappearance to withdraw $1,200.

    The newspaper says Berwanger was last seen by her brother on March 3 at Law’s home, and that she may have been intended to move to Washington state after a falling out with Law.

    Court records show that the 41-year-old Law told authorities he hadn’t seen Berwanger since selling her his car for $800. He told investigators he believed Berwanger went to Florida to visit her son or to Alaska to meet up with somebody she knew from social media. But police said surveillance footage showed him driving the car when he used the bank card to withdraw the money.

    Mr. Law is certainly not the brightest bulb, is he? :confused:o_O

    From the article:

    [...]

    Law claimed to have found the Pontiac high-centered on a snowbank at the corner of Diagonal and Clagstone roads on March 7 and “leap-frogged” his vehicle and the Pontiac back to his home, a distance of 10 miles, court records indicate.

    However, investigators obtained surveillance camera footage from banks in Spirit Lake and Coeur d’Alene which showed Law made three $400 withdrawals using Berwanger’s debit card while driving the Pontiac on March 4, March 5 and March 6, which contradicted an earlier statement in which he said he hadn’t seen the vehicle between March 5-7. Law, the affidavit said, was confronted by detectives and admitted lying about the Pontiac but had no explanation for the fabrication.

    “He did not provide a reason for why he invented the story. Law stated the Pontiac had been in his possession the entire time,” Det. Matthew Wallace said in the affidavit.

    Hearing is reset in case
    A Kelso Lake man accused of possessing a missing woman’s debit card waived his right Wednesday to a timely preliminary hearing in Bonner County Magistrate Court.

    Jordan Jarrad Law’s waiver resets the hearing, in which a judge determines if there’s sufficient evidence to justify a trial in 1st District Court, for June 12. Law is charged with criminal possession of a financial transaction card belonging to Rae Allison Berwanger, who was last seen on March 5.

    Criminal defendants in Idaho have the right to a preliminary hearing within 14 days of their arrest if they are in custody or 21 days if they aren’t. Law, who acted as his own counsel during Wednesday’s hearing, secured his release with a $30,000 surety bond on May 15, court records show.

    Hearing is reset in Law case
    A preliminary hearing has been reset for a Kelso Lake man accused of unlawfully possessing the debit card of a woman who has been missing since March.

    The case against Jordan Jarrad Law was set for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday, but is being pushed back until July 3 because he recently retained private counsel who needs time to review discovery materials in the case.

    Law, 41, is free on a $30,000 surety bond while the case is pending.

    (I am amazed by how many cases I see where the “roommate” uses the mp’s debit card.)

    “Jordan Jarrad Law remains held at the Bonner County Jail while awaiting a preliminary hearing on the felony charge, according to court documents. Law is accused of unlawfully using a financial transaction card belonging to Rae Allison Berwanger in the days after her disappearance to withdraw $1,200 from the woman’s account.”

    Any SM on this perp?
