Man Charged In Check Forgery In Fairfield

FAIRFIELD, Conn. – A Bridgeport man was arrested Tuesday and accused of trying to cash a check written in someone else’s name at a Fairfield bank, according to police reports.

A teller at People’s United Bank on Villa Avenue asked police to investigate a suspicious check brought to the bank in June. The teller told police that Thomas Dudeck, 41, gave his own identification while trying to cash an $850 check written to a different person, according to the police report. Investigators believe that the check had been stolen from a family member, police say.

Dudeck was arrested on a warrant Tuesday. He was charged with third-degree identity theft and second-degree forgery, both felonies, and fifth-degree larceny, a misdemeanor. He is being held in lieu of a $1,000 bond, and is due in court on Oct. 31.
