NORWALK, Conn. -- A 20-year-old Norwalk man was arrested after police said he tried to cash a forged check Wednesday afternoon at a bank on Westport Avenue.
Terill Kelley was charged with first-degree forgery, fifth-degree larceny, criminal attempt and interfering with an officer. He was held on $5,000 bond and will appear in court Nov. 26.
Officers responded to TD Bank on Westport Avenue at 4 p.m. Wednesday on a report of a fraudulent check. They spoke to employees, who said Kelley had come in with a check for $612.21 that he wanted to cash. Kelley did not have an account at the bank, appeared to be in a rush and was antsy as employees tried to verify the check, according to police reports.
Employees contacted the New York management company that the check supposedly came from, and were told that Kelley did not work there and should not be in possession of the check, according to police reports.
When officers arrived, Kelley refused to comply with police requests, and had to be placed on the ground and handcuffed, according to police.
