Yorktown Police report the arrest of a 65-year-old Bronx woman, who is charged with Criminal Impersonation 2nd Degree, a Class "A" Misdemeanor, Possession of a Forged Instrument, Identity Theft 1st Degree and Forgery 2nd Degree, all Class "D" Felonies.
On August 1, 2023, Yorktown Police responded to the report of a suspicious incident, where an unknown vehicle was driving around the neighborhood. Officer Pavletich located the vehicle and spoke with the occupants who alleged to be area residents. The passenger produced, what was later learned to be, a fictitious NY driver’s license as proof of her identity. Subsequent investigation revealed the defendant and the driver, who was no longer on scene, were allegedly in the area to intercept a package delivery, containing a bank card in the name of the false NY License. The defendant was arrested on the above charges and brought to YPD headquarters for processing. The vehicle was towed to YPD headquarters pending further investigation. While at headquarters, it was learned the defendant had an out of state warrant from Pennsylvania. Authorities in Pennsylvania requested the defendant be held for extradition as a fugitive from justice.
The defendant was arraigned by the Honorable Aviah Cohen-Pierson and would’ve been released on her own recognizance; however, the out of State warrant/fugitive from justice charge required the defendant be remanded to the Westchester County Jail to await extradition. The defendant is due back in the Yorktown Justice Court on September 26, 2023 at 6:00 PM.
