It is alleged that Hurtado secretly accessed the computer system of U.S. Bank and changed the contact information for two elderly customers at the bank. Thereafter, Hurtado allegedly closed these accounts and took out cashier's checks for the balance of each account:
- $50,907 on February 24, 2010 from a customer;
- $48,163 on February 26, 2010 from a customer.
After one of the victims uncovered the fraud, on June 7, 2010, Hurtado purportedly stole $10,000 in cash from the bank's vault and went to Mexico for several weeks before returning to the United States.
