OSSINING, N.Y. Police are looking for a man who tried to cash a fraudulent check at TD Bank on South Highland Avenue on Thursday morning.
The man, wanted on charges of attempted grand larceny using a fraudulent check, tried to cash a check belonging to a TD Bank customer at around 11 a.m., Ossining Det. Lt. William Sullivan said.
Bank workers realized the check was fraudulent and called police, TD spokesman Jimmy Hernandez said.
The suspect fled the scene before police could catch him, Sullivan said. An online news alert service described him as a white male who fled southbound on Route 9 in a grey Pontiac van with New York license plates FGR6368.
"We have a lot of measures in place, technology, and the employees are trained to detect fraudulent checks," Hernandez said.
Bank officials alerted the TD Bank customer whose check was in the suspect's hands of the incident.
Sullivan said similar incidents involving fraudulent checks have happened recently in various jurisdictions in Westchester and Rockland counties.
