TEWKSBURY (CBS) – The former manager of a Tewksbury bank has been charged with stealing nearly $50,000 from a customer who recently had brain surgery.

Police say 38-year-old Jose A. Dejesus was acting as the manager of a Sovereign Bank and befriended the victim in 2012. A concerned family member noticed money missing and contacted police.

Dejesus allegedly stole $47,734.68 from the victim’s account. He is charged with 16 counts of larceny over $250, nine counts of forgery, and nine counts of uttering a false document.

Police say they arrested Dejesus at his new home in Boston after a search that lasted over a year. He was arraigned in Lowell District Court Wednesday and is being held on $5,000 cash bail.
