Officers responded to a North Bedford Road auto dealership in Mount Kisco at approximately 1:15 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31, when employees suspected a customer was giving them a fake name and false ID, Westchester County Police said.

It was determined that the man, Jorge Sanchez, 54, of Yonkers, was in possession of a fraudulent New Jersey driver’s license, and a fingerprint check determined his actual identity and discovered that there was a warrant out for his arrest from the New York State Probation Department.

Sanchez was arrested and charged with attempted grand larceny, possession of a forged instrument and tampering with business records, all felonies. 

Following his arraignment in Mount Kisco Justice Court, Sanchez was remanded to the Westchester County Jail without bail.
