- Abass Warsame Mumin, 23, of Willmar, made his first appearance Thursday on two felony charges of financial card transaction fraud for his role in making fraudulent charges on a woman’s debit card.

Unconditional bail was set at $20,000. His next appearance is Sept. 17.

Mumin is one of three men charged in the case. Francisco Fredrick Galvan, 32, of Willmar, faces one felony charge. His next appearance is Sept. 17. Mowalid Muse Hirsi, 28, of Willmar, also faces one felony charge. His next appearance is Sept. 25.

According to the complaint, a woman reported to Willmar police on July 21 that she had forgotten her debit card at a local gas station and that when she went back to the store, video footage showed a man, identified as Hirsi, taking the card. There were multiple fraudulent charges on the card.

Video footage at several local businesses showed Hirsi and Mumin using the card to make $1,100 in purchases. Two people reported that Hirsi and Mumin had offered them liquor to drive them around to the stores. Information was later sent to the police department that Galvan had used the card to make an online purchase of a cell phone, which was delivered to an address where he had been living.
