GREENWICH, Conn. -- A Greenwich man is accused of defrauding his mother-in-law out of more than $300,000 over two years by forging checks taken out of her home equity loan, Greenwich police said.
Anthony Green, 34, turned himself in to Greenwich police on Friday after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Green took control of his mother-in-law's home equity loan after his father-in-law died in 2010, according to police. Green then cashed six checks in several-thousand-dollar increments made out in his wife's name and his business, T. Green Carting, totaling $315,000, police said.
Green's wife is not a suspect in the investigation.
Green is charged with one count of first-degree larceny and six counts of second-degree forgery. He posted $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on April 12.
