Jericho, NY - November 5th, 2014 - The Major Case Bureau reports the details of an arrest for Grand Larceny that occurred in December 2011.

According to detectives, a male victim reported to police that the defendant Joseph Koch, 56, of Holiday Pond Road, Jericho borrowed $150,000.00 in December of 2011 promising to pay the victim the full amount in March 2012.  The defendant showed the victim a list of people that owed him money which lead the victim to believe that he would receive his money.  March 2012 arrived and defendant Koch made no attempt to pay the money back. In October 2012, defendant Koch gave the victim promissory notes that stated he would pay the victim back with interest.

The defendant also gave the victim five checks of various amounts that represented repayment towards the loans, but the five checks returned with insufficient funds.  After an investigation by detectives it was discovered that defendant Koch produced fictitious documents and checks to impede the recovery of the victims’ money.

On November 4, 2014 officers from the Bureau of Special Operations and detectives from Crimes Against Property Squad placed defendant Joseph Koch under arrest at his home without incident.

The defendant is being charged with Grand Larceny 2nd Degree and will be arraigned on November 5, 2014 at First District, Hempstead.
