Police: Woman took dead man’s ATM card

MEYERSDALE — A Meyersdale woman was charged with theft after police said she allegedly used a dead man’s bank card.

Summit Township police charged Karen E. Logue, 46, with theft, receiving stolen property, forgery, identity theft and access device fraud.

In a criminal complaint, police allege that Logue used the man’s bank card to withdraw $250 at a Sheetz ATM on Aug. 5, just hours after the man died.

Logue allegedly attempted to use the card on Aug. 10 at a Citizens National Bank branch, but the transaction was denied because the bank was aware the man had died, police said.

Logue also is accused of taking

the man’s Dodge Ram pickup, police said.

Police said Logue told them she took the truck because the man had planned to give it to her anyway.

She also told police she used the bank card because the man had given her permission before he died.

Logue also told police she took a television because the man was going to give it to her son, according to the complaint.

The executor of the man’s estate said Logue had no permission to do any of those things, police said.

Logue, of the 600 block of Glade City Road, was arraigned Wednesday by District Judge Douglas Bell of Meyersdale and released on $5,000 unsecured bond.
