Man Flees Bank After Attempting Fraudulent Withdrawal, Stony Point PD Says

ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. --  A man who was attempting to withdraw cash from the Chase Bank in Stony Point on Wednesday with a fake ID, took police on a short foot chase before being caught, said police.

Alec Crawley, 47, of the Bronx, was caught after officials with the bank called the police to report a man attempting to withdraw 1,550 using a forged identification of an actual bank customer, said Stony Point Police Lt. Daniel Hylas.

Police responded to the Chase Bank on South Liberty Drive within 30 seconds of the call and began to question a man who was exiting the bank, Hylas said.

The man stopped when asked for identification, then immediately fled on foot away from police who chased him across Route 9W for a couple of hundred yards. Police apprehended Crawley near Wenzel Lane where he was taken into custody, Hylas added.

Crawley was charged with four counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, one count of identity theft, one count of attempted grand larceny, and one count of resisting arrest.

He is being held at the Rockland County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.

Detectives determined Crawley is suspected of successfully stealing $1,750 from a Chase bank in Garnerville just 30 minutes earlier.
