Second person charged in 2012 HSBC bank thefts
Dustin Bowden, 28, of 2241 Webster Ave., Bronx, N.Y., was arrested on June 12 on charges of criminal attempt of third-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit third-degree larceny, second-degree forgery, conspiracy to commit second-degree forgery, identify theft, conspiracy to commit identity theft and interfering with an officer.
Bowden was wanted on an arrest warrant. According to the report, Stamford police contacted Darien police saying they had taken Bowden.
His arrest stems from a Sept. 5, 2012, incident at HSBC Bank, 151 Post Road, Darien, where Stephanie Jeffry had been arrested during an attempt to withdraw $3,000 from a customer's account, said police. She was also responsible for successfully withdrawing $2,800 from a customer's account at a Stamford HSBC bank, according to police. She was found to be in possession of bogus information and legitimate account holder information, according to the report.
An investigation reveled that Bowden has been working with Jeffry and had driven her to both banks and had provided her with the account information and fake identification, said police.
Bowden posted $25,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on June 25.
