Police say while en route, dispatch advised the suspect was in the bank's drive-thru wearing a blonde wig and white sweatshirt and was believed to be in her mid-30s.

Police say they contacted a female in the drive-thru matching the description provided, and the female identified herself as Ashley Barton.

Police say they later found that the female, Crystal Dawn Crabtree, had falsely identified herself.

Police say Crabtree attempted to withdraw funds with a check for $2,069.96, but when the bank contacted the issuing individual of the check the individual told them the check was not authorized.

Crabtree was arrested and booked into the Laramie County Detention Center on charges of interference with a peace officer - no injury, a misdemeanor, and possession of forged writings and forgery devices, a felony punishable by up to five years in prison, up to a $5,000 fine, or both.

Crabtree was also found to have an active Cheyenne Municipal Court warrant for failure to appear on the original charge of interference and shoplifting ($100-$300).

Judge Mark Moran signed the warrant on Sept. 21, 2015.

Crabtree made her initial appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court on Tuesday morning, June 11, during which her bond was set at $2,000 cash and her preliminary hearing was scheduled for June 17 at 10 a.m.
