A Salisbury man faces more than 40 charges after he allegedly stole a woman’s debit card.

According to warrants, Harold Ronald Bean, Jr., 46, of Roseman Road, was arrested Saturday after he used a stolen credit card to withdraw nearly $5,000 from a local woman’s bank account.

Between July 14 and Aug. 1, Bean made more than 40 withdrawals from an ATM, and made purchases and withdrawals from local stores, including Food Lion, Family Dollar, Walmart, CVS Pharmacy and the Speedway gas station on East Innes Street. Bean’s purchases range from approximately $6 to $500, with most occurring between July 15 and July 19.

Bean was arrested Saturday and charged with 41 counts of fraud by false pretense and two counts of credit card theft. He was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $40,000 bond.

Bean was previously charged in Stokes County with possession of stolen goods and possession of a schedule II controlled substance. In Yadkin County in 2009 he was charged with receiving a stolen vehicle and assault with a deadly weapon on a government official, and he has been charged with larceny and possession of drug paraphernalia in Rowan County.
