Man Tried to Withdraw $9K From Account That Wasn't His, Police Say

Cinnaminson police charged the New York man with theft and forgery.


A New York man with a Florida ID attempted to withdraw $9,000 from an account at a Cinnaminson bank that wasn't his, police said today.

Around 5:48 p.m., Feb. 1, Cinnaminson police were dispatched Wells Fargo on Route 130 for a male who was attempting to open new accounts and withdraw money from a different account, officials said.

Employees became suspicious and called police.

An investigation revealed the suspect had presented a counterfeit Florida driver license, and counterfeit credit and debit cards. The subject had attempted to withdraw $9,000 from an account. Employees of the bank did not allow any transactions and called police immediately.

Steven M. Salerno, 22, of Avenue N in Brooklyn, NY, was arrested without incident. He was charged with two counts of forgery, credit card theft, theft, and criminal attempt.

He was lodged in Burlington County Jail in default of $20,000 bail.

Great detective work by the employees of Cinnaminson's Wells Fargo. I am sure the owner(s) of that bank account are very grateful that the employees prevented Salerno from stealing their money. I just hope Salerno does not try to write a check for bail money!
