Yorktown Police report the arrest of a 37-year-old Cortlandt Manor man, who is charged with Grand Larceny 3rd Degree, a Class “D” Felony, and Falsifying Business Records 1st Degree, a Class “E” Felony.
On May 3, 2022 at 5:59 PM, Yorktown Police received a report of a vehicle being purchased with a forged check. Officer Battista responded and met with the victim and began an investigation. After the investigation, it was determined that the check was not forged but that a grand larceny had been committed and business records had been falsified. The victim made an agreement for the defendant to sell a vehicle on his behalf. It is alleged that the defendant sold the victim’s vehicle to a third party but told the victim the price of the sale was $6,000.00 less than the actual price. The defendant allegedly created a forged invoice for the sale from his business to conceal the discrepancy and kept the $6,000.00 difference for himself. Officer Battista spoke with an attorney representing the defendant and arranged for the defendant to voluntarily surrender himself.
On July 21, 2022 at 5:15 PM the defendant voluntarily surrendered himself at Yorktown Police Headquarters and was placed under arrest by Officer Battista. After arrest processing was completed the defendant was arraigned by the Honorable Judge Cohen-Pierson and released on his own recognizance. He is due to return to the Yorktown Justice Court on September, 2022 at 6:00 PM.
