FAIRFIELD, Conn.Jan 18 2012 – An employee at a Fairfield bank was charged with forging documents to take more than $1,800 from customers’ accounts, police say. Alexander Moran, 22, of Trumbull was arrested on a warrant Monday in connection with incidents that occurred in November.
The manager at Hudson City Savings Bank on the Post Road told police forged withdrawal slips were used to take money from two accounts. One account-holder found that an $820 withdrawal was made on Oct. 31, followed by a $200 transaction on Nov. 2. In both cases, security footage showed Moran making the withdrawals, police say.
Investigators also linked Moran to a $780 withdrawal from another customer’s account. During a check of Moran’s cash drawer on Nov. 8, $80 was found missing, police say. He was then fired.
Moran promised to make restitution, according to the police report. But police applied for an arrest warrant for three counts of second-degree forgery. He turned himself in Monday afternoon. He was released on a $5,000 bond and is due in court on Jan. 21.
