Thief withdraws more than $30G from Manhattan Chase branches with stolen bank information

An identity thief used stolen bank information to withdraw more than $30,000 from two Manhattan banks, police said Thursday.

The crook first used a victim’s compromised bank information to withdraw cash from a Chase Bank on 5th Ave. near W. 21st St. in the Flatiron District on Aug. 10, according to authorities.

The suspect struck again the next day, this time at another busy Chase Bank on 5th Ave. near W. 44th St. in Midtown, cops said.

Cops on Thursday released surveillance photos of the thief, who withdrew a total of $31,200 from the victim’s bank account.

Police described the suspect as a black man, around 50 years old, 180 pounds with brown eyes and black hair. He was last seen wearing a black polo shirt and black framed glasses.
