A 26-year-old man faces larceny and forgery charges stemming from a complaint from First County Bank.
David Reichard of Mohegan Avenue in Stamford was charged last Friday with third-degree larceny and third-degree forgery.
The arrest stems from the bank’s complaint in May alleging that Reichard deposited a check — which was forged — for $3,960 into his bank account, according to a police report.
The investigation by police detectives found that Monroe Muffler of Monroe had reported its business account compromised months earlier and that the suspect, who was not known to them, had forged the check and attempted to receive take money from their account, the report said.
Reichard turned himself in to police about 3 p.m. last Friday after learning there was a warrant for his arrest.
He posted a $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear iAug. 24 at Superior Court in Norwalk.
