GRAND LARCENY —
Police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating an individual wanted in connection with a grand larceny incident in Flushing on Aug. 23.
Just before 5 p.m., a 59-year-old man was notified by a bank representative at his home in the vicinity of 146th Street and 26th Avenue that an unknown individual had attempted to cash one of his personal checks at a TD Bank, located at 640 East Fordham Road in the Bronx.
The incident caused the victim’s checking account to be overdrawn. Police later determined that an unknown individual had gained possession of one of the victim’s bank checks and altered it. The suspect then deposited the check and attempted to withdraw money from a fraudulent account.
The suspect is described as a black man who was last seen wearing a white shirt.
