Lightning didn’t strike twice for a pair attempting to defraud a Westchester bank who were busted in their getaway car.
Investigators in Bronxville received a report of fraudulent activity at the Bronxville Trustco Bank branch on April 12, which led to an investigation by police detectives, who used Village Surveillance Cameras to track two suspects leaving the bank and getting into a car.
The following day, detectives and patrol personnel set up field surveillance on the bank and apprehended Bronx resident Antionette Williams, 29, after she withdrew $9,800 from the same fraudulent account and attempted to flee in the same getaway car used the day before. While busting Williams, police found Bronx resident Taylor Williams, 29, who was a passenger in the car, who had a warrant out for his arrest in Pittsburgh, and he was also taken into custody.
Antionette Williams was charged with felony counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument and grand larceny. Taylor Williams was charged with two counts of third-degree grand larceny, both felonies. Following arraignment, both were remanded to the Westchester County Jail in lieu of bail.
