Columbia police arrest woman accused...

COLUMBIA, Mo. - UPDATE 11:15 am: A spokesperson for the bank said this incident is a great reminder that residents should closely monitor not only bank statements but also their credit card reports as well to make sure their social security numbers are not being used for criminal activity. 

"Protecting your private information, monitoring your accounts and your credit reports is really very important to protect yourself," said Mary Wilkerson, the senior vice president for marketing. "If you have any indication that there's a problem you have to let your bank or financial institution know immediately so you can begin the process of trying to figure it out."

ORIGINAL STORY: Columbia police arrested Antwonett Biles after officers were dispatched to a forgery incident at Central Bank of Boone County. 


Police said Biles opened a car loan through Central Bank and provided a security number that was non-existent. 

Officers said Biles bought two cars using the non-existent social security number from Joe Machens Toyota and signed paperwork knowing she received the number from another woman. 

Biles faces possible charges of forgery.
