Law enforcement agents on both sides of the Hudson River are looking for a crook who stole more than $7,000 from a Queens man by cashing in fraudulent checks.

The 43-year-old victim came to the 106th Precinct‘s stationhouse in Ozone Park on Aug. 29 and reported fraudulent activity had been found against his checking account.

 

Through an investigation, detectives discovered that an unidentified man withdrew in excess of $7,300 from the victim’s checking account in cashing checks at four TD Bank branches in New Jersey between Aug. 20 and 21.

Three of the checks were cashed on Aug. 20 at TD Banks in Eatontown, West Long Branch and Ocean Township, while the fourth was cashed on Aug. 21 at a branch in Toms River. Each of the checks ranged in amounts as little as $1,760.85 to as much as $1,880.

 

On Tuesday, Oct. 18, police released photos of the suspect obtained from security camera footage at the TD Banks in Toms River and Ocean Township.

Anyone who recognizes the man or knows more about the case can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
