NEW CANAAN — Police have caught a Norwalk man accused of cashing counterfeit checks.
New Canaan police said Andy Mitchell-Maynard, 23, of Norwalk, created fake checks and then used other people’s bank accounts to cash them. Police began investigating the case after receiving a tip in March.
Mitchell-Maynard and two others deposited a $5,000 counterfeit check into a bank account on Feb. 26, according to police. This amount was then withdrawn the next day. Police are withholding the names of the two others involved.
Mitchell-Maynard turned himself into police last Thursday on an active arrest warrant.
He was charged with forgery in the second degree, larceny in the third degree, conspiracy to commit larceny in the third degree and conspiracy. His bond was set at $5,000. He appeared in court last week and is scheduled in court again on Oct. 11.
Mitchell-Maynard is also on trial for forgery and speeding charges stemming from an arrest in Westport in October 2017.
Westport police had said they found two fraudulent drivers licenses and two business checks in his car when they pulled him over near Hillspoint and Hales roads. He is also scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 11 for this case.
