Guelph police say a woman tried to open a bank account with a fake ID.

Police said they were called to a bank on Wednesday morning near Kortright and Edinburgh roads.

They said a woman tried to open an account with identification and a phone bill that staff didn’t believe were legitimate.

A 34-year-old from Toronto has been charged and will appear in a courtroom in Guelph on Nov. 17.
