A Queens Village man used a fake identification to withdraw $25,000 out of a customer's account at the Jericho Chase Bank branch on Sept. 29, according to police.
Cory Cintron, 23, reportedly posed as an existing bank customer and used a fraudulent Pennsylvania driver’s license to obtain a debit card from the branch at 35 Jericho Tpke. He then withdrew the money from an ATM.
Later that day, Cintron went to the Chase branch at 2111 Northern Blvd. in Manhasset and filled out a withdrawal slip in the amount of $9,000 for the same account. The bank teller became suspicious and when she questioned the defendant he left the bank with no funds.
After being identified through surveillance video and fingerprint evidence Cintron surrendered to Crimes Against Property Squad detectives in Westbury on Tuesday morning, Oct. 15.
Cintron was charged with two counts of third degree grand larceny and first degree identity theft. He will be arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead on Wednesday, Oct. 16.
