ASHDOWN — Police in Ashdown have arrested a man who purportedly stole about $4,500 in Social Security payments that were made to a dead man.

Ashdown Police Chief Doyle Crouch said 64-year-old Ronald Brooks Mason was seen on security video using a debit card belonging to a man who died in August.

The Texarkana Gazette reported that First National Bank in Ashdown reported the alleged theft Dec. 3. The chief says the federal government is seeking the return of $4,554 to the Treasury Department.

Police allege that Mason used the debit card to make store purchases and cash withdrawals.

Mason was in the Little River County Jail pending his first court appearance. His bond is set at $50,000.
