A months-long state police investigation into thousands of stolen dollars from a Northern Westchester bank account has led to the arrest of a woman who is facing a pair of felony charges.
In January, New York State Police began an investigation in Cortlandt, where there was an alleged fraudulent withdrawal of $8,000 from a local resident’s bank account.
The investigation led police to Brooklyn resident Noralisa Diaz, 30, who allegedly illegally transferred the money between multiple bank accounts through several telephone transactions. Diaz was located with the assistance of the NYPD 88th Precinct and was taken into custody on Thursday afternoon.
Diaz was charged with first-degree identity theft and third-degree grand larceny, both felonies. Following arraignment in the Town of Cortlandt Court, Diaz was remanded to the Westchester County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond. She is due back in court later this year to answer the charges.
