A 41-year-old Northern Westchester resident allegedly attempted to cash a check for more than $2,500 that was accidentally mailed to him, police said.
On Feb. 13, investigators at the Yorktown Police Department received a report from a local resident who said that check made out to him had been sent to an incorrect address and subsequently cashed, prompting an investigation.
Police said that a detective investigated the incident, and it was determined that on Jan. 19, Christopher Mullane of Ossining assumed the identity of the person and cashed the $2,670 check into his own bank account, and periodically made withdrawals.
Mullane turned himself in to police on Aug. 16 at Yorktown Police Headquarters, where he was charged with felony counts of grand larceny and identity theft. He was released on $1,000 cash bail and is due back in Yorktown Court at a later date to answer the charges.
