Another bank-fraud attempt leads to arrest: cops


GREENWICH — A spate of bank-fraud attempts at area banks is continuing, with another arrest carried out by police at the Chase branch on West Putnam Avenue Monday afternoon.

The arrest of a Bronx man on felony charge of forgery and identity theft in central Greenwich is the third case this month of attempted fraud using stolen documents.

Dulani Lomax, 40, of Archer Road, was apprehended with fraudulent documents, according to police, after bank personnel contacted law enforcement.

According to the arrest report, Lomax attempted to withdraw funds using a fake identification.

“The suspect was located and was in possession of a fraudulent driver’s license and a fraudulent credit card,” according to the arrest report.

Lomax was charged with two counts of forgery, criminal impersonation, identity theft and attempt at larceny. He was being held in custody in lieu of $2,500.

In recent days, similar attempts at bank fraud have resulted in arrest. A Brooklyn man was apprehended at the Chase bank in Cos Cob Saturday. A Bronx man was arrested May 1 at the Chase bank on Greenwich Avenue after trying to withdraw $2,500 with fraudulent documents, according to police.

Numerous other bank-fraud attempts have been reported to police in recent months.
