FAIRFIELD — A Bronx man was arrested and charged for alleged bank fraud, police say.

Fairfield police Lt. Antonio Granata said Igor Injomar Corporan, 24, was arrested and charged with first-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny third-degree larceny and four counts of third-degree forgery.

Granata said authorities were contacted on Dec. 10 by Chase Bank, where employees reported a male in their branch making several suspicious withdrawals from an account.

“An investigation revealed that Igor Injomar Corporan, of the Bronx, attempted to make four withdrawals on the same day from a Chase Bank account that did not belong to him,” he said.

That same day, Granata said, Corporan made a $9,500 withdrawal at the Chase Bank in Bridgeport. He said Corporan then went to the Fairfield Chase Branch and withdrew $8,500, later coming back and attempting to withdraw $5,500 at the same branch.

“Bank employees recognized the potential fraud and stalled that transaction while waiting for police. Officers arrived at the bank while Corporan was still inside,” Granata said. “There was a fourth withdrawal attempt that occurred between the Bridgeport and Fairfield withdrawals that police are still gathering information on.”

Granata said the investigation revealed revealed Corporan’s name was added to the victim’s Chase Bank account on Dec. 10 by a woman purporting herself to be the account holder and using Pennsylvania identification to prove it.

“When the bank grew suspicious of Corporan’s transactions, they contacted the account holder, a Michigan resident, who confirmed Corporan was not an authorized user and the account holder did not know Corporan,” he said.

Granata said Corporan was held on a $10,000 bond.
