Bank Fraud Suspects Arrested In Greenwich: Police
The arrests occurred Wednesday evening on Greenwich Avenue.
GREENWICH, CT — A trio of suspects were arrested on larceny, identity theft, forgery and related charges Wednesday after they pulled off a $2,500 check fraud scheme at one Greenwich Chase Bank branch, but were caught after failing to pull off a similar crime a short while later at another Chase branch, according to Greenwich police.
Chase staff at the Greenwich Avenue branch contacted police just before 6 p.m. after a man tried to cash a $3,000 check, which employees believed was fraudulent. The man subsequently left the bank before the transaction was completed.
Police soon learned that the same suspect had successfully cashed a fake check for $2,500 at the West Putnam Avenue Chase a short while before, and officers were able to apprehend the suspect and two accomplices as they tried to drive away from the rear parking lot of the Greenwich Avenue Chase.
Arrested were Brian C. Summier, 35, of New York, NY; Derrick Johnson, 50, of New Haven; and Carl Pierre Alexander, 35, of Mauldin, South Carolina.
Summier and Alexander were each held on $5,000 bonds, and Johnson, who was the one who entered the banks, was held on a $10,000 bond. All three are scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Jan. 24.
