BANGOR — Police in Bangor say a man has been charged with theft after using his father’s ATM card to withdraw money.

Thirty-one-year-old Frederick Ward was at a hospital with his father — who was being treated — when he reportedly threatened to steal the father’s car.

Lt. Jeff Millard says police were called, and that when they arrived, they found that Ward had his father’s debit card and had used it to take out $300 more from a bank than the father had authorized.

The Bangor Daily News says Ward was charged Tuesday.
