Red River Credit Union Employee Foils Theft Attempt

December 7, 2023 – A quick thinking employee at the Sulphur Springs Red River Credit Union knew something wasn’t quite right with a Dallas man’s identification as he tried to open an account at the Gilmer St branch.

Julian Christopher Medina-Montgomery

Local law enforcement from the Sulphur Springs Police Department were dispatched to the location to sort out the matter. The man was found to be in possession of a Texas driver’s license that the State of Texas had a different name associated with the number on the license the man presented. The man also presented authorities with a social security number, but unfortunately for the man, that number did not match up with the name he was trying to use as well.

The man was placed under arrest and transported to the Hopkins County Jail for fingerprinting so that his true identity could be known. That information proved to be more accurate as the suspect was identified as Julian Christoper Medina-Montgomery, age 22, from Dallas, Texas. During a pat down at the jail, Medina-Montgomery’s was found to be in possession of a baggy with a white powder that was confirmed to be cocaine.

Julian Christopher Medina-Montgomery was charged with Fraudulent Use of Identifying Information, a state jail felony, and Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 >=1G<4G, a third degree felony. Medina-Montgomery remains in the Hopkins County Jail with a total bond amount of $15,000.
