Nassau police said they arrested a Queens man Tuesday, charging him with identity theft and grand larceny after they said he used a fraudulent driver's license to get a bank card and withdraw funds from someone else's account last month.
Cory Cintron, 23, of Queens Village, entered a Chase Bank at 35 Jericho Tpke. in Jericho Sept. 29 and pretended to be an existing bank customer, police said. Using someone else's Pennsylvania driver's license, Cintron was able to obtain an ATM card, and he withdrew $25,000 from the customer's account, police said.
Later that day, Cintron went to a Chase Bank branch at 2111 Northern Blvd. in Manhasset and filled out a withdrawal slip for $9,000 from the same account, according to police.
Police said the bank teller became suspicious of the transaction, but when she questioned the suspect, he fled the bank without the money he'd requested.
After being identified through surveillance video and fingerprint evidence, Cintron surrendered to Nassau County detectives in Westbury Tuesday morning. police said.
Cintron was charged with two counts of third degree grand larceny and first degree identity theft. He will be arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead on Wednesday, police said.
