A Rockville Centre man was arrested Tuesday morning after failing to repay a four-year-old personal loan and writing a bad check when he did make an attempt, Nassau County police said.

Marc Levine, 42, of 404 Westminster Rd., "entered into a written agreement" in November 2009, borrowing money from a 50-year-old man, with the understanding it would be paid back in a year, police said.

Levine did not try to pay the money back until June 2013, when he wrote a check for $110,000, with insufficient funds, police said.

Levine surrendered to police at the Crimes Against Property Squad Bureau in Westbury, a police spokesman said. Police earlier said he was arrested at his home.

Charged with two counts of second-degree grand larceny and with issuing a bad check, he was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in First District Court, Hempstead.
