Hempstead, NY - May 11, 2015 - The Major Case Bureau reports the arrest of a Brooklyn man for forgery and grand larceny which occurred in Herricks on Monday, 05/11/15 at 4:30 P.M.

According to detectives, Steven Colon, 53, of Brooklyn entered the Wells Fargo Bank located at 145 Fulton Ave., Hempstead, told the bank employee that he had lost his debit card and requested a replacement card.  The defendant presented a fraudulent State of Virginia Driver’s License and a Capital One Mastercard, in the name of a Wells Fargo Bank account holder.  After receiving a temporary Wells Fargo debit card, the defendant left and proceeded to the Wells Fargo Bank located at 2499 Jericho Tpke. in Herricks where he requested to withdraw $8,000.  A bank employee recognized the defendant from a recent fraud notification and called police.  The defendant became nervous and attempted to leave the bank but was apprehended by police as he exited.  Further investigation revealed that the defendant fraudulently removed approximately $12,000 from several Wells Fargo Bank accounts throughout Nassau County, in the month of April, using the personal identifying information of account holders.

Colon is being charged with Forgery 2nd Degree, two counts of Possession Forged Instrument 2nd Degree, Identity Theft 1st Degree, two counts of Grand Larceny 3rd Degree, and three counts of Grand Larceny 4th Degree.  He will be arraigned on Tuesday, 05/12/15 in First District Court, Hempstead.
