Utica Man Arrested for Allegedly Depositing Stolen Check
A Utica man is facing numerous charges after allegedly depositing a stolen check.
According to New Hartford Police, they were called to the M&T Bank in Consumer Square by bank employees for reports of a man attempting to withdraw money from a business account he opened on May 18th.
It was discovered that 38-year-old Jermaine Waring of Utica had deposited a check into that business account for over 32 thousand dollars and had withdrawn approximately 20 thousand dollars over the course of three days from various ATMs from Central New York to New Jersey.
An investigation revealed that a business in Mt. Vernon, New York had issued the check to a business with a similar name to Waring's in Illinois, but that business never received it.
Waring allegedly came to be in possession of the check and filed for a business name shortly after that. He's facing several charges including Criminal Possession of Stolen Property and Grand Larceny.
