A 30-year-old former branch manager at TD Bank on 107 Chatsworth Ave. in Larchmont, was arraigned on six felony charges for siphoning $739K of bank funds into his own personal accounts.
Jeremy Winter, of Ridgefield, CT, was charged with three counts of second degree grand larceny, second degree forgery, first degree falsifying business records and first degree scheme to defraud, announced Westchester County DA Janet DiFiore. He was arrested on Feb. 28 by Larchmont Police.
According to the release sent out today, Winter made large transfers of money out of several customer's accounts into his own and a relative's personal accounts to repay personal loans and contractors hired to do home improvements.
"In order to avoid detection, the defendant would 'rob Peter to pay Paul,' basically take money from a new victim’s account in order to pay back older victims," said the release.
Additionally, Winter forged a bank customer's signature on a $110K withdrawal slip.
The Westchester DA's office joined the Larchmont Police investigation in September 2012.
Winter's bail is $100K cash or bond; he is due to appear in County Court on May 14.
