Thomas J. Dudeck, 41, of Park Avenue, Bridgeport, was arrested Tuesday at Bridgeport Superior Court on a warrant charging him with second-degree forgery, third-degree identity theft and fifth-degree larceny.
Dudeck on June 1 cashed an $850 check against a relative's account, forging the relative's name, at the Villa Avenue People's United Bank branch office, police said. Dudeck gave his driver's license as identification when he cashed the check.
He was held on a $5,000 bond and arraigned in court that same day.
