A Fairfield County woman has been arrested for allegedly attempting to cash a fraudulent $1,250 check.
The incident took place in Westport on Thursday, April 28 at the Westport National Bank at 1111 Post Road East.
Julie Harris, 26, of Bridgeport, was arrested after officers responded to the bank on a report that a woman was attempting to cash a check for $1,250 made out to her from a Bridgeport business, said Lt. David Wolf, of the Westport Police.
The teller became suspicious because the check was out of numerical sequence. Therefore, a representative from the bank called the business and learned that they never issued Harris a check, Wolf said.
The check Harris was trying to cash was allegedly illegally manufactured using the businesses’ account information, he added.
Harris was charged with conspiracy to commit larceny and a criminal attempt to commit larceny.
She was released after posting a $2,500 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned at Stamford Superior Court on Tuesday, May 10.
