A 22-year-old man is facing a felony charge for allegedly stealing more than $1,000 from a Westchester bank as part of an elaborate online check cashing scheme, police said.
On Aug. 2, an investigator from the Yorktown Police Department was assigned to investigate an incident at the Hudson River Financial Federal Credit Union in Mohegan Lake.
The investigation determined that Ossining resident Julio Cruz engaged in an online check cashing scheme to defraud the bank. Between June 2 and June 13, Cruz allegedly stole the money from the Hudson River Financial Federal Credit Union. He surrendered himself to police at Yonkers Police Headquarters on Aug. 9 for arrest.
Cruz was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, a felony. He was released following his arraignment and is due back in Yorktown Justice Court on Sept. 20 to answer the charge.
