A Bridgeport man was charged Tuesday for allegedly cashing a check in another person's name. The check may have belonged to a family member, according to police.
Thomas Dudeck, 41, was charged with third-degree identity theft, second-degree forgery, and fifth-degree larceny as a result of the investigation, which police launched in June. Dudeck allegedly cashed an $850 check from another person's account at the People's United Bank branch on Villa Avenue, police said.
Dudeck was held in lieu of a $5,000 bond and is scheduled to next appear in court on Oct. 31.
