SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Scarsdale Police detectives have arrested and charged a 22-year-old Brooklyn man with identity theft and fraud.
Terence Redden of Brooklyn was arrested in connection with two separate Identity Theft and Fraud investigations, Scarsdale Police said. The first case involved an East Parkway business that reported three fraudulent checks totaling $3,500 had been drawn against a business account on Dec. 16, 2013. The second involved a Post Road resident who reported three fraudulent checks totaling $4,000 had been drawn against her account on Dec. 31.
Detectives Craig Carroll and Joe Serio investigated the cases individually but it "became obvious that they were both pursuing the same suspect," Scarsdale Police said. The two Detectives developed enough evidence against suspect Terence Redden in both cases, police said, and with the assistance of the New York Police Department, brought Redden into custody.
Redden was charged separately for the two incidents with two counts of Possession of a Forged Instrument 2nd Degree, a Class D Felony; two counts of Grand Larceny 4th Degree, a Class E Felony; two counts of Identity Theft 2nd Degree, a Class e Felony; and two counts of Unlawful Possession of Personal ID Info 3rd Degree, a Class A Misdemeanor.
The suspect was arraigned on the six felony and two misdemeanor charges by Judge John Galloway and remanded to the Westchester County Jail on $100,000 bail.
