After striking out the first time, a man was caught red-handed in Westchester allegedly attempting to illegally withdraw money at a bank that wasn’t his, police said.

Officers from the Yorktown Police Department were dispatched to Chase Bank on Commerce Street at approximately 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, where there was a report of identity theft in process.

According to police, the bank manager told responding officers that they had been notified by a different bank branch earlier in the day that Bronx resident Kevin Brown, 44, had attempted to withdraw money from another person’s account, and he was attempting to do the same at their branch.

An investigation into the alleged identity theft led to the arrest of Brown, who was allegedly using the identity of a different person and had their debit card, while attempting to withdraw money from their bank accounts.

Brown was arrested and charged with felony counts of identity theft, attempted grand larceny and possession of a forged instrument. He was remanded to the Westchester County Jail without bail and is due back in court on July 24 to answer the charges.
