A woman attempted to make fraudulent withdrawals totaling $170,000 using a fake identification at a Chase Bank in Greenwich, police said.
The incident occurred at around 2 .m. on Friday, June 22 at the branch at 1150 East Putnam Ave., where 23-year-old Mengyan Zhou attempted withdrawals of $150,000 and $20,000, said Lt. David Nemecek of the Greenwich Police Department.
Zhou presented investigating officers with a fraudulent New York license, attempting to depict herself as the bank account holder, police said, adding that she also lied to officers several times regarding her identity.
She was charged with first-degree larceny, attempted larceny, criminal impersonation, interfering with an officer and two counts of forgery.
Zhou has no known address, police said.
She was unable to post $150,000 bond and was given a court date of July 6 at Stamford Superior Court.
