A Brooklyn, New York, man was arrested Monday for allegedly cashing a fraudulent check at a Westminster branch of SunTrust Bank in late 2017.

Keith Alexis Charles, 73, was charged with theft between $1,500 and $25,000, fraudulent ID information theft, and issuing a counterfeit order. He posted bail, which was set at $5,000, the same day he was arrested, according to electronic court records.

According to the statement of charges, Charles used a fake ID in another person’s name at one of SunTrust Bank’s Westminster branches to cash a $6,600 check in December 2017. Police requested an arrest warrant, which was issued June 15 of last year.

Charles had a history of cashing fraudulent checks at multiple SunTrust branches, the statement read. The victim resides in Florida and doesn’t know Charles.

The statement and online electronic records did not list the defendant’s contact information for comment. A court date is scheduled for Aug. 6.
