Bethlehem Police said a Brooklyn man was arrested after they received a report of a person attempting to withdraw a large sum of money from Citizen’s Bank in Slingerlands on Wednesday, Oct. 7,
Shaun G. Williams, 34, of Brooklyn was charged with two counts of identity theft in the first degree, forgery in the second degree, attempted grand larceny, all felonies, and unlawful possession of personal identification in the third degree, a misdemeanor.
Employees of the bank reportedly identified William as the person attempting to make the withdrawal after police located him.
Williams allegedly used a fraudulent Ohio State driver’s license to assume the identity of another, and was reportedly found to be in possession of a withdrawal slip in the amount of $10,000 in the name of a different person.
Williams was released from prison and was on parole for similar charges. His parole has since been revoked. Williams was arraigned at Albany County Jail with no bail and is scheduled to return to court Wednesday, Sept. 13.
