Gary Richard Post/Wapello County Jail

An Ottumwa man is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from a relative’s bank account.

Gary Richard Post, 21, is charged with Unauthorized Use of Credit Card Over $1,000 and Under $10,000 and Unauthorized use of Credit Card Under $1,000. Wapello County deputies served a warrant for his arrest Thursday.

Online court records indicate sometime between December 2016 and March this year, Post used two different credit cards to make several unauthorized purchases.

Deputies say a total of $819.69 was stolen from one account, and $5,229.95 was taken from a second account.

Post has since posted bond and was released from custody this week.
