Port Chester Police Charge Man in Chase Bank Fraud

PORT CHESTER, N.Y. – Juan Figueroa of the Bronx was charged with two felonies after attempting to withdraw $3,900 from a Chase bank branch on Monday afternoon, police said.

About 3:30 p.m. Figueroa approached the counter at the Chase branch on Westchester Avenue and requested the withdrawal, police said. The teller noticed that the signature on his driver's license did not match the signature on the withdrawal slip and consulted with her manager, police said.

The bank then called the owner of the account, a South Nyack man, and asked him if anyone besides him was authorized to withdraw, to which he replied no.

When police arrived, the man who attempted to withdraw the money had left. Police said they arrested Figueroa later that day from a description provided by the teller. Figueroa was charged with third-degree attempted grand larceny and criminal possession of a forged instrument, both felonies. He is due back in court on Thursday, June 21.

The following item also was reported by Port Chester police:

Menacing: Christopher Vasquez of Bridgeport was charged with misdemeanor menacing in an incident involving two Rye teenagers at a Port Chester McDonald's on Sunday evening. Police said Vasquez told the pair to give him money for food "or else." Vasquez was arrested after witnesses reported the incident to police.
