LAYTON -- A 25-year-old man is wanted for taking $25,000 mistakenly placed in his bank account.

An arrest warrant for Kristopher Lee Ertman was filed Thursday in 2nd District Court in Farmington. The warrant claims the money was transferred into Ertman's America First Credit Union account Dec. 17 without authorization. Later that day, Ertman told bank officials he was moving out of state and cashed out his account.

Ertman has been charged with communications fraud and theft by deception, both second-degree felonies. The bail on his warrant is $10,000.
