According to court documents, Haugland went to the Exchange Bank in Easton on April 23 and used his brother’s ID to withdraw a total of $101,000 from his brother’s account without his knowledge.

Haugland then used cashier’s checks to purchase a car from Aristocrat Motors in Johnson County.

Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson called the crime an “unfortunate abuse of family.”

Haugland is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 6.
