Jomar Lizardo, 30, who managed the Wells Fargo bank at 1100 W. Granada Blvd., has been arrested as part of a fraud case in which an estimated $45,000 was stolen from customers, according to a Feb. 13 story in the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

Katie Kustura, of the News-Journal, wrote in yesterday’s story that Lizardo, of Port Orange, stole funds from customer’s accounts using stolen identities. The first report of an unauthorized withdrawal was for $8,000, posted last November.

The case is now in the hands of state investigators, who believe the scheme reaches outside of Volusia County lines.

Lizardo has not yet been identified as the scheme’s ring leader, but he is the only one who has so far been arrested.
