Greenwich Police busted two New York City men for trying to open a fake bank account at the Wells Fargo Bank on Glenville Road, according to Greenwich Police.

Ahmad Penn, 57, and Larry Gattling, 28, were arrested Monday, Jan. 29 after bank officials call police around 4: p.m. about a suspicious person, police said.

Police said that Penn used a fake Massachusetts driver's license and a fake credit card to open the account and then try and withdrew $3,000. Gattling drove Penn to the bank and was in the parking lot.

Both were charged with identity theft, forgery, criminal impersonation and conspiracy to commit larceny, police said.

They are being held in lieu of $3,000 bonds and are scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Feb. 12.
