WESTPORT, Conn. — A Danbury man who tried to cash three fraudulent checks at a Post Road East bank was tracked down arrested in town Friday, police said.
Around 4 p.m., police said Cody Tyson, 24, of Kennedy Avenue, tried to cash three checks totaling $2,670 at the Bank of America drive-up window.
When confronted by police, Tyson fled and was not pursued, as he was driving recklessly, police said.
His car was later found on Main Street and police found Tyson on foot on Evergreen Avenue near Compo Road North. He was also found to have three fraudulent credit cards, police said.
Tyson was charged with three counts of third-degree forgery, criminal attempt at third-degree larceny, three counts of credit card theft, reckless driving, disobeying the signal of an officer and operation of a motor vehicle without a license, police said.
He was held on $27,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 31.
