Lawton man charged with using dead woman's identity

LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton man was arrested and charged after he tried to use a dead woman’s ID card at a Lawton bank.

Police were called to a Lawton bank when Robert Peppers tried to cash a check on a dead woman’s account and presented her ID card Tuesday morning. Bank staff told police the woman died September 11 and her account was closed September 12. One of the officers on scene also discovered that Peppers had an outstanding warrant for a bogus check.

Peppers had a family member in the car with him at the time, and the family member told police Peppers picked up the check from a woman at a hotel.

Peppers was charged with identity theft and uttering a forged instrument Wednesday. His bond was set at $25,000.
