Man Arrested For Bilking Banks Out Of Cash

A Maryland man is in the Pitt County jail, accused of bilking thousands of dollars from a local bank.

Police arrested 20 year old Jason Pickett last week. They say on Wednesday the Sykesville, Maryland man withdrew $36,000 in cash from the BB&T branch on Greenville Boulevard and then went back the next day and tried to get another $23,967.

Bank employees detained Pickett on his second visit until police could arrive.

Detectives say Pickett is also accused of getting more than $92,000 from a Wachovia Bank in Maryland and then attempting to launder the proceeds through a Certificate of Deposit and withdrawals.

Pickett is being held without bond.
